The leaves are a beautiful dark autumn brown with a few furry golden tips amongst them. On average they are a few mm long and thin with a sweet malt and currant scent.
Once steeped this tea is golden brown in colour and has a honeyed malt aroma.
Flavour is very light and sweet with essences of: malt, honey, sweet flowers, raisins and fresh wood.
It’s a nice subtle black tea with plenty of charm and sweetness. Definiately a black tea that you can drink and relax with. Also considering there were only a few golden tips present I would have guessed there were more if not entirely golden tips.
I would consider buying this tea for a change compared to my beloved Dian Hong golden tips but honestly it will not be a favourite of mine.
