This is our highest quality Yunnan Black tea, made entirely of just young tea buds with bright copper and golden colors. The delightful dry leaf aroma is woody and lightly floral, with a hint of chocolate. The brew’s deep caramel color hints at its bold aromas of drying tobacco, wildflower honey and blond woods. Its honey-sweet flavor is full-bodied, round and brimming with smooth notes of apple blossoms, apricots, buttery, baked yams and chocolate. The long-lasting aftertaste has exquisite notes of tobacco and bittersweet chocolate.

From CharlotteZero! thanks so much! I’ve only got one serving left of Verdant’s Golden Fleece and maybe a few teaspoons of this one will fit that spot in my cupboard. I LOVE the description (it sounded like my very favorite- Butiki’s Hattialli Golden Lion Assam). It sounds like all the flavors I love in a tea. Unfortunately, not quite the same as either tea…
Steep #1 // 15 minutes after cooling // 3 1/2 min
This blend seems to be darker than Golden Fleece. The flavor is light but not as light as GF. Less honey, more sweet potato. Also a hint of tobacco. It’s difficult to describe this one actually. It might have a bit of chocolate when it cools. I’m not really getting any chocolate or apricots as the description mentions.
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 1/2 min
Another nice cup… this one would be in the middle of the Hattialli and the Golden Fleece, flavor-wise. Tasty, but the other two do their thing better than this one.
