This tea goes by many names, such as Ye Bai Ya (Wild White Sprouts), Ya Bao (Treasure Sprouts), and Bai Lao Ying (White Eagle).  While it is commonly believed to be the branch buds of wild puer trees that grow in Yunnan, it actually consists of the branch buds harvested from a species of laurel that grows wild in southern Yunnan.  

This tea has a deliciously unique flavor, powerfully reminiscent of succulents. It is subtle, yet lively, fresh, green, and verdant. It's flavor is juicy and delectable, with the slightest hint of smokiness in the first couple of brews.  The flavor of its downy hairs are also quite apparent, in a way that will be familiar to fans of silver needle or white peony, though its flavor is otherwise quite distinct. 

Ultimately, this tea is incomparable, and must be tasted to be properly understood.  

Brought to you from the south of Yunnan, where peacocks, elephants, and good tea reign supreme.

Price is per 50 grams/1.76 ounces
