2 Tasting Notes
It was storming outside – hence I felt it was a perfect opportunity to brew some tea and feel the goodness of pouring rain and windy weather. So I set up on the verandah, grabbed some Yabao Pu’er cus its always great for times like these for its floral, intimate-with-nature qualities. And it was wonderful. Little to no color in the liquor, subtle flavor, perfect for gongfu brewing or for drinking all day as its unlikely to go bitter for a long time. Brewed about eleven times before I ran out of water.
Its definitely not for everyday drinking. But its lovely when had occasionally and great for beginners as it has a scented-with-flowers feel to it. One of my first picks to share with a guest. A rare underrated tea, I must say I love Yabao in nature.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers
Easily one of my favorite black tea for the late afternoon.
Love the delicate look and the smell of the dry buds; captures the true essence of a delicious black tea before trying a cup of. The perfect brew sends out a floral scent, the right amount of astringency with a subtle sweet taste.
