From Silver Leaf Tea

From the cloud covered mountains of the Yunnan province in China, this tippy golden flowery orange pekoe (TGFOP) produces a sweet and robust tea. Teas from Yunnan have an exotic peppery flavor note. Good with light savory meals as well as breads, cheeses, and jams.

I’m having a small sample of this and logging before sending the rest in the next TTB 1.2 thanks to DAX. :)

This is a peppery-chewy type taste. Not overly bold but still pretty good.

I know this may be TMI, but, this tea makes me burp! LOL

It’s the Diet Dr. Pepper of the tea world ;)

Another tea out of the Travelling Teabox – I imagin I’ll be trying many of those as I try to decide which teas from the box I want to keep and which ones to send on. :)

It smells like a typical Yunnan – that sort of slightly smokey, slightly tannic scent. People have likened it to tobacco (not cigarettes), though since I avoid tobacco on principle I really don’t have a good idea what it smells like.

It’s not as ‘dense’ a tea as other Yunnans I’ve tried have been, instead it’s quite smooth and surprsingly light. It has a surprisingly sweet note in the middle of each sip before it trails off into a more tannic sort of aftertaste. It’s a little bit drying on the mouth I find, but not too bad. I may or may not keep this one.
