This loose tea is produced from white tips of Yunnan puer trees. Only old puer trees tips are used to produce this tea. Ya Bao is made according to white tea producing technology. The raw material is open tips and usually these tips got frozen on the trees. Such material is not suitable for premium white puer, but it is perfect for Ya Bao producing. That’s why Ya Bao is budget tea, although is it has excellent taste and it was picked on the old trees. Ya Bao tea is lighter then leaf tea, it has nearly “compote” sweet taste with a tint of sour taste which turns into astringency. The aroma is fruity and light. This tea is similar to raw puers, but it is much less oxidized. That’s why this tea should not be stored for a long time. Drink it fresh and enjoy!
