Yue Guang Bai in a loose form was one of the first finer teas I had an obsession for. This is the first time I’ve had it from a cake and it tastes just gorgeous.

The liquor is a beautiful amber with the familiar damp hay aroma wafting up. While the first infusion does indeed have the same astringency that I’ve grown accustomed to, there’s something milder about the flavor. It makes me wonder if perhaps some of the loose Yue Guang Bai I’ve had was rather new and this cake had been aged, even briefly. I’ll do some research into this and discuss it on my next tasting, I’m sure.

All this does so far is assure me of my affections for a hearty Yue Guang Bai!

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
