This is a stunningly gorgeous and delectable wild Yunnan white. Ya Bao AKA Ye Bai Ya, meaning Wild White Buds, is composed entirely of the buds of wild puer trees in southern Yunnan.  (These are the buds that would later develop into branches.)  Given this origin, it can be considered to be either puer, white tea, both, or neither. It is entirely unique, like no other tea.  These buds still retain their white fur, much like Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yin Zhen), which gives them their lustrous silver sheen.  

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. 

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

Price is per 50 grams/1.76 ounces
