From Norbu Tea

Ya Bao, which means “Bud Treasure” is made entirely from hand-picked buds from a wild-growing Camellia variety specific only to the Yunnan/Myanmar border region. In early Spring, new growth lateral buds are simply picked and dried in the sun to produce Ya Bao. When infused, the liquor is light and clear with just a touch of yellow green. In the cup, the infusion has distinct hints of evergreen & fresh, sweet, young vegetables (squash blossoms?) with a very light, crisp finish.

This is not exactly a tea. More like hay. But drinkable.

Flavors: Hay

Day 6 Amanda ‘SoggyEnderman’ Wilson Tea Advent Calendar
I feel like I am drinking melted snow from a cedar forest. This tea is heavenly! There are peachy notes as an after thought. I am in love this tea.

There were several specific years of this tea in the database. Since I couldn’t identify what year this was, what harvest this was, I just created a generic one. Why not.

This is today’s advent calendar tea.

Ya Bao is one of my favorite styles of tea. I love it.

I decided to have this one grandpa style. This tea is good flavor-wise grandpa style, but trickier to drink because the buds float. A wider mouth cup so one can gently blow the tea out of the way before drinking is highly recommended.

This version of ya bao is not as strong or sweet as many others I have had, but it’s still quite nice. The lighter flavors are really good for grandpa style.
