drank Snow Bud (Xue Ya) by Curious Tea
128 tasting notes

Water: 8oz

Leaves: long thin, dark green w/ fuzzy

Steep: 4m,5m

Aroma: Floral

Color: pale yellow

Taste: I received this as a part of CuriousTea complementary tea box. This evening i was in the mood for something light so i decided to go with this tea. The aroma was floral not too strong. One thing i found interesting about this tea is that is it required 4 minutes to steep for it to be a white tea. I boiled water then let it cool for 7m before adding it to the leaves, hopping that wouldn’t be too cool for the steeping time. The first cup had no bitterness & light in flavor. The second steep i lowered the water cooling time to 6m and up the brewing to 5m. The result was same flavor profile just slightly warmer tea. Overall i found this to be a nice light tea.

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
