I like Yunnans so when I saw this tea from this supplier, based on the photo and the description it sounded like a winner. Having tried it a few times now I am finding that it’s a bit disappointing.
The leaf is beautiful, with yellow and black twisted long leaves. The color of the brew at 3 minutes is dark. The flavor is lacking. Yes it has some maltiness but the flavor is not what I’d expect of a standard Yunnan nor a golden Yunnan tea. For me it’s just a kind of an “eehhh” flavor, nothing exciting or noteworthy. I can’t say (based on recent cuppings) that I’d re-order this one.
