LOVE! This was part of the Steepster Select box this month, and it is SO GOOD. A lovely Yunnan! Peppery, sweet, and full-flavored. Robust. This one’s a keeper!
Phoenix Yunnan Gold
Accented with golden highlights, the dark tea leaves of the Phoenix Yunnan Gold have a warm, welcoming fragrance reminiscent of a citrus fruit. When infused, the tea relinquishes a bright sweetness. The brewing leaves becomes reddish-brown, producing a tea that is light orange in color. The tea has a honey-like sweetness with no trace of bitterness that other black tea may possess. The medium body of the tea strikes a fine balance in flavor that is neither weak nor overpowering, but just right.
Our Phoenix Yunnan Gold is quickly becoming a favorite in our fine selection. The lasting sweetness in every cup will keep you brewing for more. If you enjoy black teas, this is certainly not one you would want to miss out on.
