Wild Tree Purple "Sweet Ya Bao" White Tea * Spring 2017
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This is a special varietal of Purple "Ye Sheng" Wild Tree Tea. It literally grows wild and this "sweet" sub-type is the most rare of all. It took 2 people 16 days to collect and process just 10 kilograms of this incredibly unique tea.
The processing is very simple and involves brief withering and hot dry air exposure to halt the oxidation. The resulting tea is incredibly unique and is like a floral bouquet drenched in watermelon juice. The floral character is something like rose both in taste and smell. This tea is totally unlike any other tea I have ever tried, and not only is it unique but it's very complex and goes many many steeps.
Harvested in Jinggu County of Simao
