Its Monday. I don’t really feel I need to go into any further detail to explain the reason that I needed a comfort tea this evening. I’ve recently finished the last of the golden yunnan I bought from, good riddance to the vile stuff. I really love my dian hongs but I had a hard time finishing that crap, sorry I’m in a mood, I mean less than quality tea.

So on to better things, I picked this up from Xiu Xian a couple months ago and have been patiently waiting to try it. Its awesome. It does help that compared to what I was drinking just about anything would be awesome, but this is definitely what a golden tip yunnan should be like. Its not dusty and doesn’t taste like coffee, yes I realize these are simple qualifiers but I am still bitter about the last stuff.

The liquor brews up very crisp and clean, gorgeous stuff really. But the flavor profile is awesome, really sweet. I could see this becoming too sweet after a couple months of drinking it but for the moment it is a nice change of pace. It has a really mild flavor, I mean its good and distinct, but not in your face and overbearing. The current drawback is it doesn’t seem to resteep as well as some that I have had, I’ll keep playing with it though.

I can’t finish any tea which I think is vile. You are a better person than I am. :)

Not better, just more delusional :), I kept telling myself, this is good tea, it high quality and unique, your just not brewing it right. Nope it wasn’t me. Never again am I buying 100 grams of a tea I haven’t had before, ever.


I drink just about any tea, although I did throw out 2 oz of Lapsang tea years ago. I do like mildly smokey teas, but this was one I tired of. I had a few cups, and it sat around forever, and then the last cup I attempted to drink was REALLY smokey. I threw it out.
