Oh man, this tea is good! This taste so much different than other golden tipped blacks I’ve had. I think this tea is all golden tip than black! (totally check out the photos I took on my blog entry)

Golden Fleece’s flavor is quite nice: kinda nutty, little spice and lots of sweet vanilla and marshmallow root like flavor. Also a really nice silky texture to this tea. The silky creamy aftertaste sticks throughout all the infusions. I’m talking 17 infusions here!

In sum, Golden Fleece is like drinking liquid gold!

Sigh, all these tasty blacks I’ve been drinking makes me feel like I should buy another yixing pot for black tea. Argg!

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
