The unique flavor of this rare white tea, made of only the delicate unripe gems of Ancient Tea Trees, is unmatched among white teas. Its inebriating balsamic aroma blooms in the cup, filling the air with the delicate vigor of spring flowers; while the liquor shines of a golden hue, and delights the palate with intense muscat notes.
Harvested in Spring 2018
Yabao has a very fascinating history: it comes from Lunan Shan, the mountain where our ancient trees grow. It belongs to us, but at the same time, we can't call it ours only: it is part of a forest under public concession, and all the farmers in the area contribute to its maintenance and draw a share from it. This is our share, the most precious gem, selected for you with the utmost care.
