My favorite black tea. Sweet, spicy, smooth, lovely.

Teaman

That’s a pretty strong endorsement. I’m a yunnan gold fan and so this peaks my interest. I’ve had a fair number of golden yunnans from various places and some are good, some not, and a few really good. Emporer’s Gold from Tao of Tea is my favorite by far. I’m wondering how it compares with this one. Have you compared this one with other sources?

I have tried some other sources, Ineeka’s is really good, as is Narien’s. Both are different enough from this one such that I have a hard time saying one is “better”. I will say that I prefer this Yunnan Gold, though!

Teaman

Chicagoland sure has sources I’ve not heard of. May have to check them out sometime. Thanks for the recommends!

Nice, Lainie. I have a tiny sample of Yunnan from Teas Etc. that I haven’t tried yet. I’ll look for the qualities you mention.
