From Silk Road Teas

Gold Bud is made with the dayeh leaf, a sub-varietal of Camellia sinensis, varietal assamica. This leaf grows wild in the jungle and forests of Yunnan.

Our lot is made of curled thick golden leaves that cup to a distinctive, reddish liquor with a wonderful spicy and creamy-sweet flavor. This black or “red” tea is made from an indigenous varietal, Dayeh, a large-leaf tea tree found to Yunnan Province. The leaves are strikingly golden-brown in color, the cup is spicy and sweet and thirst quenching. This is a refreshing, full-flavored tea that is good most anytime. This tea can take milk.

Chose to gongfu steep this one. Wow – this tea brew a nice clean, thick liquid. The aroma is spicy in its chai-likeness, yet has deep hay notes and a sweet molasses and oats thickness. This tea is pretty remarkable in how it continues to produce several cups without weakening. I may load up on this one on my next purchase. Thank you, Silk Road Teas for including this generous sample with my purchase!

Rich. That’s my first impression. The flavor feels rich.

It has that brown flavor of a black tea, those warm tones, but much less intense than the assams I tend to like.

Very mild astringency.

It has a slight fruit quality on the tip of the tongue, though I can’t place quite what. My brain keeps saying “it makes you think of black cherries” but it’s an impression the taste gives rather than a distinct flavor in the mouth. It’s a very lightly sweet but dark taste.

The black acrid edge that I like in black teas is there but again very light compared to others I tend to really be into. It’s just a minor accent to the warmer brown-and-cherry-impression flavor… it rounds it out pleasantly.

It’s a good play on the internet and drink while chilling out tea, IMO, lol.

I really like it. I bought it as I have had just a couple yunnan teas in the past and enjoyed them and hadn’t tried any new in a long time… actually a couple years, I think! I’m glad I did, this is likely to be a regular for me.

Really lovely, thick-yet-delicate tea that could easily serve as a morning eye opening. The company suggests that it will take milk, and sure enough, with a dollop of cream in the morning cup this tea could stand mug to mug with any good assam. Really happy with this.
