Jing Gu Yang Ta Yunnan Bai Mu Dan White Tea, Spring 2018 via Yunnan Sourcing.
Instead of the more common Camellia sinensis, this tea is made from a wild species of Camellia, Camellia taliensis.
After the last several bud only white teas, you can see this one is the ‘one bud, one leaf’ style of tea.
This is a subtle, sweet and grassy tea with an herbal/mint after taste and a zippy caffeine content.
The notes on the Yunnan Sourcing website suggest floral/fruity notes may be expressed in later steeps. Not sure if I get those, but will continue to steep.
