From English Tea Store

A delicious tea that’s outstanding with milk, our Golden Heaven Yunnan China Black tea is something to look at! Composed of tippy, neat, wiry, and well-made leaves, this tea is characterized by its shape, color, aroma, and malty taste. This tea produces a bright reddish cup with a brisk, fragrant aroma. One of the highest quality teas available from Yunnan Province, it is made during the last 2 weeks of March and the first 2 weeks of April, delivering a brighter golden tip. Known as one of the worlds great teas, this tea is perfect on its own, but also takes a bit of milk or sugar well, as it helps to capture the malty character.

For the best brew, Golden Heaven Yunnan should steep in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 3-7 minutes.

Tea?yay! First cup since Sunday and it’s soooooooo goooood!

Anna

Your body must be so confused. ‘Where did all the tea go?!’

Sil

Pretty much….haven’t had any coffee either until today heh it’s been nice

How did you avoid caffeine withdrawal headache?

Sil

Uh….sooo funny story? Caffeine doesn’t really affect me, as long as I eat. Which is also why I can consume as much tea as I do when I’m home. If I’ve eaten during the course of the day, I can drink coffee/tea and go to bed. :) if I haven’t eaten, then I’m screwed. Going off tea and coffee, I’m fine as long as. I eat…which I have certainly been doing a lot of here, haven’t even switched to drinking coke…just water :)

__Morgana__

That’s really interesting. When I was younger, caffeine didn’t keep me awake, but I ALWAYS got a withdrawal headache if I didn’t have it for more than a day. I still get the headaches, and caffeine also now affects me more than it used do, so worst of both worlds.

Sil

I’m hoping that the headaches never kick in for me….that would be so nice :)

Sil

Maybe it’s cause I never had coffee until I was 24 and before that, neither tea nor pop was a Regular occurrence in my days :)

Seems like I got this FOREVER ago from Rachel Sincere! Thanks very much!

This is a nice, bold Yunnan black with lots of black peppercorn flavor, and a bit of yam and sugarcane. The leaves are sort of medium sized for a Yunnan black, and mostly chocolate brown/black in color with some golden buds mixed in.

I’ve been blending it with Fengqing dian hong, which is milder and yamier, and it makes a for a nice balance of flavor.

Brewing this in my new(ish) yixing, and I’ve had to use about double the amount of tea that I normally would. So far its still sucking up a LOT of the flavor, more than my other two did. The side effect of using so much tea is a major caffeine high, which, admittedly is pretty nice when studying for exams :)
