drank Golden Tippy Yunnan by Tealeaves

Thank you to Nicole for this sample! Once again, apparently I am easy to please, because I really like this tea. The flavors are mild, but it is malty and earthy…though less earthy than other Yunnan teas I have tried. I steeped the leaves for 4 minutes the first time, and actually had to run out and left the leaves steeping for 15 minutes the second time. A light but enjoyable tea was produced both times, so it does not seem like you have to worry about oversteeping with this one!

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
