Review of Yabao (Winter White Buds)

Very GoodExcellentOutstanding

Method: 1 tbsp, 8 oz, 208 degrees, 5 minutes, Forlife brew in mug strainer & Dr. Who mug

Dry Leaf Aroma: Lightly Evergreen

Brewing Aroma: Same as above

Flavor: Fascinating. This was a very mild and lovely tea. It definitely doesn't look like most teas. The buds are very pretty. This wasn't sweet, but it didn't need any additives. It's really hard for me to describe. I could taste several distinctive flavors, but aside from a lightly evergreen flavor, I couldn't tell you what the rest of them were!

I think I am going to need to try this one a few more times, paying special attention to the flavors. Maybe over time I will be able to identify more. This one is absolutely worth the effort!
