65

2 heaping tsp for 16 oz

A very smooth tea, but doesn’t have the characteristic Yunnan flavor I’ve come to expect from a tippy Yunnan black. The Teavivre I have is a much better example.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I agree…I also think that Yunnan ‘golden’ blacks have been lacking in much of the signature dynamic flavors they have been known for, for a couple years…the best of which I have gotten direct from Yunnan Tea Sourcing and oddly enough…from Republic of Tea

Kashyap, I am about to place an order at Yunnan for 2 dian hongs recommended by user Doug. Care to give me your recommendation for a favorite so I can add it?

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
