From Curious Tea

We selected Yunnan Golden Tip for our February Dark and Mixed boxes. This premium tea has a very attractive large and twisted black leaf and plenty of golden tip. Once brewed, it produces a deep brown liquor with a strong malty flavour and caramel aftertaste. Not dissimilar to an Assam in many ways, it still has distinctive characteristics that are not common in other Assam teas.

I received a box of two samples of my choice to review.
Let me tell you. i haven’t seen 50g samples. Ever. it was packed nicely.

Today i tried this tea.
my usual parameters 5g 120ml teapot
rinse/ 10/15/20/30 etc
this tea is sweet and so smooth. thankfully not much of sweet potato (im tired of sweet potatoes;)
its more caramely, malty,some floral and honey and spice. long lingering sweet aftertaste. Some slight astringency , not unpleasant but rather welcoming. to make it complex and interesting

Thank you so much Curious Tea for sending me this sample. its sure a winner !

This is really good – I have been into exploring blacks lately, and received this as part of a box I will be reviewing. It is super malty and does have a sweet note in it that gives it that caramel edge. I will really enjoy drinking the rest of this, it is pretty perfect in the mornings.
