Organic Bai Ya Bao

(1 customer review)

Don’t be fooled by the near-colorless infusion, the flavor of this tea is bold. The pronounced honey and spice flavor is balanced with a hint of pine and cedar and no astringency. It’s white tea turned to 11.

    Surprisingly, it is not as easy to find organic Ya Bao as one would think. Anyone who enjoys the finer art of tea will love Ya Bao. It is the a delicate white tea that has one very rare characteristic: it does not get bitter. You might be surprised to hear this, though it truly never gets bitter. You can forget the tea buds in water for an hour and it will not be bitter. You can use the same tea buds with multiple rounds of hot water and it will not get bitter. Try adding any other white, green, or black tea into a pot, add hot water, wait as long as you prefer, and then add another round of hot water after you finished drinking the tea. It will get bitter, with very few exceptions. With Ya Bao, you can refill your tea pot with hot water multiple times, easily five times, and it stays absolutely delicious. The taste tends to get a bit stronger with the second brewing, and I find it has the perfect taste from the third brewing onwards, though it is never bitter. My favourite tea, by far! My recommendation is to use a tea pot that holds the right amount of water for the number of cups you want to drink at the same time. So for example, if you drink with your partner it should hold two cups and if you drink with three people it should hold four cups. Add hot water, wait about four minutes, fill the tea cups, and immediately refill the tea pot for the next round. Then, by the time you finished drinking, the tea is ready and you can repeat the cycle. Do as often as you like. It is magic!
