First to review this one?!? I’ve very grateful to NaturesTeaLeaf.com for the samples! I’m starting to find that Yunnans are a necessity in my tea collection! I love the flavor! The leaves here are more golden yellow than black. They kind of remind me of little caterpillars. the flavor that is more light than I would have expected, but maybe the water is cooler than the suggested 195 degrees. It has a lighter, fresher flavor than I expect from a yunnan (though I must admit I haven’t tried many of them yet.) The flavor is malty, a tiny hint of dark chocolate, honey, some sort of stone fruit. Come on… fruit drizzled in honey and chocolate? Yes please! The second steep, I used just boiled water for 10 minutes. This stuff doesn’t get astringent, even when I drank the last of the cup cold. As expected, this cup had the deeper flavor that I love. I’ll probably start collecting Yunnans like I collect Earl Grey Creams. This one is a great one to add to the collection! So so good!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
