4 Tasting Notes
This tea (to me) has hints of pine, licorice and peach. I just brewed about a teaspoon and a half of these Ya bao buds in a small glass gaiwan. I’m new to Ya bao but i’m very interested in them now. This tea is great! If you like white teas and you like puerh I highly suggest this tea for you.
I’m not usually a fan of the smokey sheng puerhs, but this one is amazing! After a quick rinse in my yixing teapot this tea was ready to go. I had multiple short steepings each one more complex than the last. My first steepings were more of the smokey flavor but after the third it mellowed out and left me with the most amazing subtle lemon aftertaste. I really enjoyed my free sample and will be ordering more very soon!
