I’ve been hesitant to come back to the Yabao.

I admit that it intimidates me, and I have this sense that I’m somehow unworthy, not yet ready, for this tea.

But already things are going better than they did the first time I went through a series of steeps with it.

I used more buds, and while the results are still incredibly subtle, I don’t feel like I’m bursting blood vessels trying to taste something, here.

In the end, though, as interesting and unique as the flavor profile here is, I think I’d rather spend my money and effort on a good silver needles or bai mudan.

I am rarely, if ever, active here. But I do return from time to time to talk about a very special tea I’ve come across.
