Tea of the Week – Snowbud

Name: Snowbud

Type:  White

Region:  Fujian province, China

Bought At:  Adagio.com

Price:  $2 for a five cup sample

First Impressions:  Large leaves, with interesting white “hair” on them


The first of four white teas that I am trying, snowbud was a good start.  It has very subtle flavors, really weak compared to a green or even a oolong tea.  Drinking it I feel the smoothness of it more than anything else.  Even though it doesn’t have a strong flavor per say, it is a really enjoyable drink.  It leaves a smooth warm feeling for quite  a while after you have finished it.  I enjoyed it, I think I will be able to judge it a little better after I have tried some of the other white teas.

My Rating:
3 / 5
