From Grace Tea Company

Our Silver Tip Yunnan is sourced from tea estates located high in the mountains of South China’s Yunnan province. This delightful black tea produces a brew with an exquisite fragrance, somewhat similar to a high grown Ceylon tea. Yunnan’s delicate, almost golden leaves produce a lovely flavor when brewed, one that is lighter than the traditional black teas of South China.

Yes, it is almost 1am. Yes, I am drinking black tea….no, I’m not sure if I will be sleeping anytime soon.
I needed something strong to get the grass taste out of my mouth after the sencha fiasco…this is working and is also very good.

Okay, silly question: This tea tastes remarkably similar to the Golden Monkey sample I’ve had. I know that Golden Monkey is from a Yunnan, but do they do anything special to it for the tea to be called Golden Monkey? Or is this Yunnan pretty much the same thing?

This is slightly musky scent…maybe more like a black tea and dry ice type smell??? Not sure…

It’s VERY dark in color.

This is an extremely bold BLACK tea – nice for the mornings – great for corporate meetings as a coffee alternative – ideal for that afternoon pick-me-up…and so on!

Different but interesting and purposeful
:)

From my review at It’s All About the Leaf:
http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/2120/tea-review-grace-tea-company-china-yunnan-silver-tip-choice-2/

I have tried to write this review for something like 3-4 months. Every time I get excited about drinking this tea, get excited about brewing up tea, and then as I start drinking the tea I lose focus and end up working on something else.

So today, I’m trying to actually focus. This tea review, it SHALL be written. But as I’m drinking it, I think the fact that I am easily distracted is part of the review itself. The tea is just not holding my attention long enough to really get a good review. The aroma of the unbrewed leaf is malty with overtones of pepper. It’s got a lovely chestnut color. But the flavor is more subtle. It’s got a hint of sweetness, and some richness and a hint of earth to it. When you take a sip, the brew tastes good – but it just slips your mind quickly. It’s a nice tea, it’s just not my cup of tea.
