Thank you Azzrian for sending me some of this tea! I’m glad I’m finally feeling healthy so that I can start trying some of these marvelous teas you’ve sent me!

Oh this is good! I do love a good Golden Yunnan and this one is certainly just that. The sip begins sweet, with notes of caramel, cocoa and grape (yes grape!) that seem to intertwine to create a taste that is so very pleasantly sweet. By mid-sip, the sip transitions toward a more savory taste, with hints of pepper that prepare the palate for a freshly baked bread kind of taste … but not just any freshly baked bread. Imagine one of those artisan loaves, with the olives baked inside? Yeah… that! It tastes so rich and savory, and that hint of olive is so surprising and delicious.

Throughout the sip there is no sign of bitterness, and there is very, very little astringency (as in, it’s difficult to notice any at all) to this cup. This would be a great tea for those who generally avoid black teas for fear of bitterness or astringency, because well… there’s next to none. Just delicious, rich, smooth flavor. Amazingly good.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
