From American Tea Room

Our organic Golden Yunnan is an extraordinary tea produced in the famed tea-producing region of Yunnan, China, placing it high in the ranks of prized teas worldwide. It’s well-oxidized, espresso-dark leaves are flecked with shimmering golden-blond buds and imbued with a sweet, earthy aroma. Its liquor is a rich, dark brown with copper-rust undertones and a sweet, delicate aroma. The flavor is incredibly smooth, with rounded flavors of Tupelo honey and cured tobacco. Sip and savor Golden Yunnan’s full-bodied richness. Enjoy with milk for a richer, earthier Chinese milk tea, or pair with dim sum, smoke-cured fish, and ginger candies.

This tea is certified USDA Organic.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.

Only 10 more notes until I hit 1000. Wow.

I’m a little surprised that there wasn’t an entry for this already. I have several samples of ATR Yunnans, and since I’ve been enjoying Yunnans recently I decided to try one of them.

My sample is just called Golden Yunnan. It doesn’t have the word organic in it, but I’m pretty sure this is the same as what’s currently on the ATR site.

The leaves in my packet looked pretty much exactly like the picture on the site, mostly medium-dark green with some golden tips punctuating the green. The dry tea has a surprisingly complex aroma. A little earth, a little tobacco, a little pepper.

Steeped, its a clear, dark reddish brown and has a really mouthwatering sweet aroma that makes me think of molasses or a really dark honey, but also of baking bread.

The flavor is amazingly smooth and soothing, and it immediately calmed my tummy which had reacted to too much black tea this morning before this one. It has a natural sweetness, but isn’t overly sweet. There’s a bit of a fresh bakery bread taste, and if I look for the tobacco note I can find it. There’s that malty quality I find in Yunnans as well, and the characteristic dash of pepper in the finish.

Just a really pleasant tea all around. I’m looking forward to trying my other Yunnan samples from ATR.
