Merry Christmas! I hope you’re enjoying the holiday and having a great time. I didn’t do any holiday decorating this year, but when I saw this yabao from Verdant Tea, I had to pick it up because it looks like little mini Christmas trees! According to Verdant Tea, this silver buds yabao has a flavor somewhere between white tea and pu’erh. Interesting!
A quick steep yields a pretty spicy and flavorful brew with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg flavor with a nice floral aftertaste. It’s very crisp, and I can imagine this would be really refreshing as an iced tea. A little bit of this tea goes along way, so grab some today before it’s gone!
