|Enjoyed this tea a lot. Beautiful leaves, glossy, tan/brown and almost purple in places.
The smell released on opening the pack was worth the price of admission alone. Chocolatey, almost sweet, and very, very malty. Brewed up, the malt odyssey continues (remarkably like sniffing actual steeping malted barley), with fruity, sweetly smoky notes lurking behind. The taste has the expected biscuity/malty profile, but sitting wonderfully in balance with tobacco-y, leathery notes. Big, robust and mouth filling, but also complex.
Iīm finding it gets too bitter and overwhelms the flavor after anything more than a minuteīs steep. Keep it short! Good for at least two steeps, probably more.
You will not regret this tea.|
|Every order I place at teasrping I always get this tea. It is my favorite black tea. When I saw it was from 2014 I about peed my pants. ( could be from drinking so much tea). It is sweeter and lighter than most black teas. The after taste is really what makes this tea so great. Sweet, chocolaty, with notes of spice and a mild tobacco flavour. It is awesome. |
|Amazing nutty, choclatey flavor that I canīt get from any teas sold domestically. Iīm hooked.|
|Very nice, if not a little moderate. It didnīt really stand out among other Chinese black teas.|
|Since i start shopping here, it is my favorite one. Suitable for quick brewing and everyday use for black tea lovers. A rather simple, but satisfying deep taste. Recommended. |
|Довольно таки интересный чаёк, подходит для того, чтобы приготовить его по-быстрому, без заморочек
|il mio preferito per colazioni salate. profumo caratteristico il suo gusto esalta cibi speziati. eccellente.|
|Excellent in every regard, very subtle and impossible to misbrew. I prefer this to the pure gold yunnen. Wonderful and worth the high price.|
|Taste is smooth and mellow but with a brisk and strong astringency and pull. The aroma is lovely with hints of vanilla. A black tea that tastes gentle at first but ends with a forceful, strong, and bold character. A great morning wake-up-jolt tea! Excellent tea!|
|squisito; ideale per la colazione ma molto piacevole anche per il pomeriggio.|
|the parfume is already the begin of an adventure. the flavor is a long way to paradise!
|I have to say that this is one of the best Yunnanīs I have ever had. It is amazingly sweet with that beautiful classic "malty and tobacco" like fragrance that lingers on the pallet. I found it interesting how light and sweet it was for a Yunnan. It remind me of an aged Bai Hao yin jin. I brewed it in a guiwan for only about using just boiled water. |
|Nice black tea shares some characteristics with Dian Hong, with some difference.|
|This is a very good tea. Had I not discovered Yunnan Pure Gold, I would probably still drink this tea. The leaves are simply gorgeous with so many golden colors standing out in front of a rich, dark tapestry. The unbrewed scent is a little lighter and more like apricot than honey. The soup itself is a clear, yellowish brown and the scent gains some complexity of pepper scent. The flavor is bold and leans more toward the pepper side of things as well, which many people prefer. Perhaps a little more astringent than the Yunnan Pure Gold. Very good complexity, though, and I recommend you try it.
|This is my favorite black tea the taste is great and flavour is never bitter.|
|my favorite tea. excellent taste!
Soft and light taste of first welding.
Strong and pleasant, if longer brew.|
