From LeafSpa Organic Tea

Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Yunnan tea is easily identified by its luscious soft leaves, and a unique peppery taste. Our ‘Yunnan Gold’ as the name implies is an exceptional quality tea with beautiful gold-colored leaves and an abundance of rich peppery flavor. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, ‘Yunnan Gold’ would be our clear choice.

Origin of Primary Ingredient: China
Certified Organic Tea: Yes

Ingredients: organic black tea

Steeping this tea now as it’s perfect for after this morning’s workout. It brews a really nice color in my new Sorapot. I’d write more but I’ve gotta run.

Yay Sorapot!

It’s really late or early morning and I’m thinking about tea. I would like to try a new dessert tea. What is your favorite?

I received this in a swap. I can’t remember who sent this to me, but I managed to get several steeps from this! Thank you! It has the typical metallic, light, peppery taste to it. I like this black tea since I don’t need to have any additives in this. It tastes good with or without milk or sugar. This is a nice, light tea.

Note to self: Next time, don’t steep as long.

Not that there’s anything wrong with it, mind you. But for someone who’s not a huge fan of black tea, it was a little too, well, black.

I was willing to give black tea yet another try, though, and I’m glad I did with this one. Maybe because it’s yunan, or maybe because it’s organic, but either way I’ve actually found a black tea that I (gasp) rather enjoy. Oddly enough, I think I like the smell of the leaves better than the taste—not that that’s saying much of anything. The leaves have a strong, earthy smell (The length of time my nose was stuck in the canister is probably unhealthy).

The tea itself is good. It’s not like other black teas I’ve tried. There’s no bitter aftertaste, which is something I frequently experience with not-so-great teas. It’s really smooth, with a slight pepper aftertaste. Good call on this steepster select deal. Of course, we realize I now have a standard for black tea. I can’t drink that Tetley crap ever again.

Also, it took me too long to write this so the remaining tea in my mug is lukewarm. And it’s still not bad.

LeafSpa Teas’ Yunnan Gold is a very smooth, light tea. Considering it is from the Yunnan Provence, this tea is on the lighter side of teas coming out of the region. The lightness is reminiscent of a breakfast black tea. The liquor color is a beautiful copper color, but the flavor is the best part of the tea. The taste includes a tobacco flavor, but is also earthy and peppery in the aftertaste.. There is a lot of body for this tea and just a hint of that darkness that is commonly found in Yunnan teas. The peppery aspect of the tea is found in the aftertaste of the tea and has honey hints that pairs nicely with the slight pepperiness. This pepper flavor is a subtle aspect of the tea versus a dominant flavor in the liquor, which is very pleasing.

Silky smooth going down, an unassuming everyman of tea. . . I bring it to work in the morning when it’s too early to care. Gets the job done so I can.

Once again, another beautiful tea from LeafSpa. I don’t know why but somehow they manage to produce good looking teas (if that matters to you).

Tin was packed crazy like others have mentioned before. Pre steeping, it doesn’t have a strong scent: Mild earthy tones and even milder pepper scent. Once properly steeped, the dark bronze liquor gives out a much more distinct scent.

This tea is like liquid pretzel ! Now that might not sound very appealing but it is actually very good. Those looking for a strong smoked black tea should look elsewhere. This is a smooth experience !

“Good looking teas” are pretty important to me- especially when it comes to the leaf itself. If a leaf is broken and crushed it’s not good quality.
