This is the first tea I am sampling from the amazing box of black, oolong, puerh, etc that I got in my swap with Nofar.

I love Dian Hong teas. They are so rich & buttery, & this one is right on the mark. It bears a very strong resemblance to our beloved Golden Fleece, with nice thick leaves in shades of gold, olive, & caramel. The flavor is rich, from the rinse water all the way through the final steeping. Gentle, sweet, thick. What does Amber taste like? Sunlight? For awhile I get a sense of Bee Pollen. I love teas like this. The flavor of mushrooms sauteed in Mirin. The flavor of honeysuckle in a later steeping. And I keep steeping. This is what I needed.

Yay! So glad that you liked it. This is from a little tea shop in Portobello road market. They also have an online store, but the store itself is a little treasure.

Had a delightful, bright, golden cup of this this morning. I wish that I had more time with it, much more time, for many lazy, golden steepings. This is a thick, silky, malt/caramel/cane sugar/honey of a tea, that really begs you to let go of the daily humdrum of your life and enjoy a good book in a sunny garden chair. Fantastic!
