drank Golden Snail by Harney & Sons
120 tasting notes

Jenn gave me a sample of this to continue my quest for all things Harney & Sons.
WOW! I have not been overwhelmed by a tea for a while now. Dry, there was a hint of cocoa. Steeped, there is rich smoothness and an intensity of black tea flavor at the beginning of the sip. This diminishes quickly. It reminds me of some Darjeelings I have tried, and the black tea is similar to some Lapsangs sans smoke. This is VERY interesting. Lastly, the "Golden Snail name is fairly unappealing to me personally, and I actually found the look of the tea closer to the darker locks of fir in the family Shi-Tzu.
Anyone supportive of a name change to Golden Shi-Tzu? I didn’t think so… :)
Thanks Jenn for a generous and thought provoking sample.

I’m pretty sure that Harney’s marketing team would shoot down the “Golden Shi-Tzu” name change idea :) I would love this tea no matter the name.

LOL, yep, I guess I agree.
