From Yunnan Sourcing

Gao Li Gong mountain is located in Tengchong prefecture of Yunnan. It’s a high mountain area that has many dormant volcanoes, abundant hot spring and lush plants and soil. This premium black tea is composed entirely of tender buds expertly fermented by a local tea master. The tea plantation is a small family owned operation located at an altitude of 1900 meters above sea level!

The tea itself brews up a golden tea soup that hints of honey beer, with strong malty and sweet notes. It is very thick in the mouth and despite it’s subtle character has a strong cha qi and nice mouth feel. It’s also much more infusable than other lower altitude black teas!

Uniquely different than Simao and Feng Qing black teas!

A nice, slightly different Yunnan black! It has a deeper, charcoal/cocoa flavor than other Dian Hongs that reminds me a bit of Fuijan blacks and the Sumatra Black Pearl from Mountain Tea Co. Instead of the sugarcane/rum type taste of some Yunnan’s I’ve had, this reminds me more of Israeli date honey or a malty Belgian ale. Its also very infusable, first black I’ve had to last an entire kettle of water.

More in depth review to come, I’ve got a headache and feeling a bit woozy today for some reason :(

Sounds good…in the mood for some black tea after oolong in the morning.

That sounds nice. I bough a ‘Golden Needle’ (it was black except one golden needle per every 16 black) for similar reasons. I rarely drink it, I feel it pairs well while eating sweets because it feels heavy.
