I had previously only tried one yabao tea, that being Verdant’s Silver Buds Yabao, which I find to be tasty enough, although it’s not a tea I’d want all the time. It tasted very much of juniper, in my opinion. This tea, however, is quite different. I can taste the similarity to the other yabao, but there’s a smokiness and the flavour is much less juniper-like and green – a richer, almost more complex, aged flavour. It’s actually really quite good, and makes me want to try more yabaos! One difference is that this one is darker in colour than the silver buds yabao; I’m not sure why, but I’m guessing it’s affecting the flavour (I don’t know if it’s aged or roasted specifically, or anything). Anyhow, mission: try more yabao tea will be happening. Eventually.

I recommend Norbu’s Yabao (which is actually on sale now). It has a sweeter, more mellow taste than Verdant’s, and I like it much more.
