In a hurry, but right off the bat I will say that this tea reminds me a bit of Golden Snail.

The dry leaves have a very strong scent of raisins or molasses. There is a rich, deep, dark aroma and I was almost afraid this was going to be TOO strong for me. The tea itself, however, is quite another story. It has a similar profile to Golden Snail but is milder, and I think there is an Assam-like note but with no astringency at all.

I think we have a winner. SimplyJenW, keep an eye on your mailbox!

Yippeee! How did you know this one was going in and out of my shopping cart due to indecision?

Hmm…a potential Golden Snail replacement. Good to know!!

OMG! I’m making a H&S order this coming week (I have, like, a tablespoon of Vanilla Comoro left!) and this is going in the order for sure!

Jacqueline, I will pop some in the mail TODAY so you can try it before you order. I say this because Gracie likes Golden Snail but not Hunan Golden Twist.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
