A true gem I discovered thanks to Steepster. So smooth it’s like drinking hot chocolate. yummm

How long did you have it steep? By the way thanks to you & TeaEqualsBliss I am really enjoying the world of tea. I tried a tea called Scottish Breakfast and a Robio (?), anyhow it was all very delicious & fun.


I had a hunch you would enjoy this one!!!!


@Laurence – I let it steep around 4-5 minutes. It does not get bitter very easily


Oooh! This sounds great!

This is SO – GOOD!!! OMG! Amazing! Every time I try a new tea from the Tao of Tea, I think I’ve found their best of the best … and then I try another one and it is just as good (or perhaps better, it would be hard to say!)

But what I can say is that this is absolutely delicious. The buttery flavor is there – and it astounds me that this is a black tea with that kind of note, because I’m used to finding it in a green tea or an Oolong, but, I not many black teas possess this kind of buttery taste. It smells delightful.

This is definitely one I need to spend a little more time with! It is so awesome!

I have been wanting to try this one and thanks to LiberTEAS I was able to TODAY! It smells very bold and chewy and malty and I just love it!

Taste-wise it’s a real gem too! Malty-YUM! It’s like a malty-black with buttery-lima-beans and sweet potatoes, ALMOST…I know that’s a random description but it’s the first few things that popped into my head and the flavor is out of this world! It really is!!!

By far one of my favorite teas. I love the golden color and the smoothness of this tea. I find myself drinking this after a long day at work mostly, and brew two or three cups when I can.

If you’ve enjoyed other “Gold Tipped” teas, my bet is you will enjoy this as well.

The flavor profile provided by Tao of Tea is spot on. I was particularly fond of the sweet potato undertones. This tea was fantastic and held up to repeated steeping without astringency as promised. Would drink again.
