From Tea Guys

Yunnan is an exceptional quality tea with gold-tipped leaves and an abundance of flavor. It is one of the rare teas to combine aroma with strength, subtlety with rich taste. Full and round, it is nicknamed “the mocha of tea” and goes great with milk to compliment any breakfast.

Trying this one again. In the mood for a yunnan, and I’m all out of my Emperor’s Gold, which makes me sad.

I upped the leaf by a bit, decreased the steeping time, and it seems to have helped, but won’t turn this one into a re-order. It’s still watery underneath, and lacks the sweet-potato-honey sweetness that I associate with my favorite yunnans. That means the peppery taste is foremost, and while that wouldn’t be bad if the tea had depth, it lacks some depth, and the tea seems very shallow. With more leaf it’s a little bit more dynamic and definitely drinkable (easily so, as it isn’t very rich), but not by enough to make this a go-to yunnan for me. Bumping the rating accordingly.
