I only have a small sample of this tea, as it is extremely expensive, and unavailable in anything but samples at the time. It is an interesting tea, with robust flavour for a white tea, and it does diverge slightly from the usual white tea palate of cucumber/hay/barley/wheat to a more oolong-ie palate of fruit, minerals, and creamy greens. It is also not as light bodied as white teas usually are. If you really love white tea, then you probably won’t rate this tea among your favourite whites. I love white tea, and Norbu’s Ya Bao is still ranked as my favourite (yes, I have tasted Verdant’s Ya Bao and I don’t like it as much), with Tea Palace’s Bai Mu Dan second, and this tea is ranked with Verdant’s Ya Bao as “an interesting white when I’m looking for a more aggressive flavour”. For me, white teas are soft, soothing, a relaxing way to end the evening in mellow sweetness. Both this Ye Sheng Wild White and Verdant’s Ya Ba have a rough edge to them that makes them more interesting, but also makes them fit to fill my white tea cravings. If you are not a white tea person, and you think that white tea is bland – this is the tea for you.
