From The Jasmine Pearl Tea Merchants

One of the finest black teas we have had the honor of tasting, golden needles are the fully oxidized young buds of Chinese tea plants from the Yunnan province. With flavor that reminds some of prunes and maple syrup, its quality surpasses most “golden needle” teas.

Finishing off the rest of my sample today, this is quite good; malty, rich and with a rich flavor of sweet potato pie. Similar to a golden monkey but a bit deeper in flavor. Would definitely get this one again.

Since I’m on such a Yunnan Gold kick lately, I felt it was time to revisit this. This time, though, I obeyed the brewing instructions on the Jasmine Pearl website. Instead of boiling water, I dialed it down to 190F (oolong-ish). The result was sheer perfection. That does it. This type is my favorite black tea ever. I have decided.
