Backlog:

I was really happy to find this tea in the Steepster Select box for March. I love Ya Bao teas, but, they are seldom a tea that I put in my “cart” when I’m shopping for tea. It seems that there are just so many great teas out there, you know?

So I looked forward to sampling this tea.

The early infusions were delicate, sweet, slightly grassy, and faintly reminiscent of honeydew melon. I also noted a very faint whisper of spice. Perhaps nutmeg with a hint of white pepper. Very subtle notes of spice, but enough to get the taste buds to perk up and say, hey, what was that?

In later infusions, I tasted notes of peaches and cream. Hay-like notes. The tea became sweeter with each infusion.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
