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.
Flavors: Apricot, Earth, Flowers, Grass, Lemongrass, Lime, Metallic, Pleasantly Sour, Sweet, Thick, Vanilla, Wet Rocks
