I’m a HUGE fan of Yunnan Golds as a rule. This one suffered from being too light compared to its other gold-tipped kin. That said, it still held quite a bit of what I loved about the type – honey-like, peppery, woody, and slightly creamy. I just wished it was a little burlier. However, to say it’s a slight disappointment compared to other Yunnan Golds is like saying, “You’re the less pretty High Elf in the court.” (I.e. It’s still excellent in its own right.)

You should pick up some Golden Fleece from Verdant. It’s a bit light, but it’s great.

I’ve heard the Golden Fleece is good. Must resist urge to buy all the tea!

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
