From Uptown Tea Imports

“Ya Bao” is a special production Yunnan tea made from tender young buds that are hand plucked from ancient tea trees. The pale-jade liquor has a unique flavor, with hints of sweet corn and light honey. The aftertaste has light evergreen hints and a pear-like sweetness, which lingers on the palate.

I’ve always wanted to try a Ya Bao :D These fuzzy pinecone-looking leaves are so cute and exciting :)

The dry leaves smell very different from anything I could have expected; the first thing that came to mind was sriracha, now I like sriracha as much as the next guy, but I don’t tend to put it in my tea, well anyways, at least I know this’ll be interesting.

Whoa, what the hell?

This has such a thick mouthfeel, with this.. honestly very pleasant sourness, that leaves a dryness in the mouth, lime, metals, lemongrass, it… tastes fuzzy? Apricot, grass, flowers, earth, rocks, acidic, vanilla, sweet

this is thicker than any white or pu’er I’ve ever had before, also I don’t think Upton’s flavour profile is very accurate

This is better than I was expecting honestly. I feel like I just need to be in a very specific mood to reach for this one again, but only time will tell.
