I love Yabao. Its one of my favorite teas. I liked the first eight treasures and I asked for this as my sample.
I did it for the suggested 185 temp and brewed it for 2 minutes. Had a nice sweet cedar taste. The juniper berries was a nice touch.

I brewed it again and let it go for maybe 5 to 7 minutes. With Yabao usually the longer the better. Not with this blend. It became pretty bitter. But then again there was not much yabao in this. More jasmine green tea then yabao. Best to keep this short and sweet.

I’m a lover of all teas. Open to almost anything,but my favorite are oolong, black, and green. I have recently been trying to get into pu’er .

Other then tea, I’m an Apple fan girl and a fan of basketball and tennis. My favorite teams are Spurs,Celtics, Thunder, and …Lebron (LOL). I have a degree in Anthropology, which at the moment is not being used.
