Tying the knot is the ceremonial bliss of the soul-mated bud and leaf. A delicate union, this is a ‘meant to be’ tea found 2,000 feet atop the famed Yunling Mountain Range of China then hand rolled into a coil of sacred perfection. Gold and black intertwine as one, creating a unique copper hue with sweet honey notes singing legendary declarations of devotion.
Medium-bodied infusion with honey undertones.

I’ve always found the Copper Knots, as I’m fond of calling them, to be aesthetically pleasing, which is what first drew me to these leaves. As someone who likes a strong pot of black tea, I find the Copper Knots to be particularly forgiving. As long as you let the water cool a bit from a boil before pouring it in the pot, you can let it steep a little more than recommended and get a robust, deeply flavored brew that’s strong yet not overly bitter. I’m actually bummed that Teavana appears not to be carrying it anymore. . .
I like the flavour of this tea, but it doesn’t have intensity. No matter how much I use, it always seems thin and doesn’t develop a strong, distinct flavour. The leaves wash out after a single, longer steeping. With milk, it is overpowered. The tea appeared damp — moistened, maybe — when I bought it, hence I have docked 5 points.
