It’s been a long time since I’ve had time to post or read reviews, or, which is worse, to properly drink tea. You know, without rushing it. With letting the tea leaves have time to unfold their secrets and speak to you.
But I have some time now, so best make the most of it. My latest purchase from Yunnan Sourcing, months ago (one upside of being so busy), was stunning. A real winner. And this was the second tea that I slipped out to try from the batch.
This Dian Hong costs a fraction than Verdant’s Golden Fleece, and while not as good, is nevertheless very good. Smooth, silky, chocolatey, with hints of maple syrup. A really wonderful afternoon treat.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
