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.
