Review of Snow Buds Green Tea

Tastes to me like a fresh, light green tea, though I do feel like the white tea undertones gives it a fuller flavor. Very smooth, no bitterness, a nice cup of pure tea. Slightly floral in aroma. I think I may have used too little leaf for the first cup because my only complaint is that I'd like a slightly stronger cup.

Update: I've once again tried this tea and really enjoyed it. The flavor is just so smooth and calming, especially right after brewing. I have a tea kettle with a warming feature and so noticed that the flavor did change after warming for an hour or so (when I went for my second cup) and the tea was a much darker color. Not bad, but the first cup was definitely better. So it may be best to brew this one with immediate servings in mind.

I also tried it with milk and thought it blended unexpectedly well. So if you like creaminess, it's worth trying that way.

The way you describe this is really similar to how I perceived it...it tasted more like a very light green tea. I also found it on the weak side and liked to brew it a little more strongly.

Yeah, I'll have to use more leaf next time I try again.<br /> <br /> Thanks again for all the samples you sent me! I'm having fun going through them. :-)
