drank Assam Golden Tips by Harney & Sons
115 tasting notes

I love drinking Assam teas- especially when “Tippy” is in the name. When I saw the golden tin, I was excited to discover the tea inside. The color of the leaves was just as the name describes: Golden. The tea itself definitely tasted like an Assam, but with a different undertone; It is hard to describe. It was lighter than most Assams, and not as earthy. The brewed tea was a nice amber-gold color which is new to me for most black teas. Over all, the tea was excellent, and I will be getting this again.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
