drank Golden Spring by Adagio Teas
1569 tasting notes

It is rainy and cold this morning and somehow the power keeps flickering on and off. I haven’t reached for this tea in a very long time. It smells sweet dry and the leaves are pretty and coiled.

First sip – very malty and reminds me of other teas such as Keemun. It is smooth and not bitter. I drank this sans milk and sugar. It has a nice sweet and smokey aftertaste. It is not like the smokiness in lapsang souchong tho.

Good overall!

I’m a medical resident who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)

Likes: chai, all types of teas, dessert teas, Dan Cong & milk oolongs, dragonwell & kukicha greens, flavored rooibos, vanilla anything

Dislikes: bitter
