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.

Waiting for you to get back 2011 Yi wu moonlight. I received a sample from you and loved it! How does this compare??

The Finest Brew Co.

Yes, it will be up in few days! Not too different actually. The yabao feels floral and fruity whereas the Moonlight is full of watermelon! Both are good to wind down to

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.
