This is the first tea that I picked out from my large Yunnan Sourcing order box, and I drank it almost exclusively for about two weeks, making a large dent in my order. It is a good quality Yunnan black tea, with a strong malty and chocolatey flavor, and great depth. The shape of the leaves is fun and unique, and really justifies the black and gold in the tea’s name. A good breakfast and noon tea, with more kick than a “normal” Yunnan, and also more flavor.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Malt

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.
