From Golden Tips Tea Co Pvt Ltd

An excellent first flush from the scenic Margaret’s Hope plantation. The tea is characteristic of a beautiful and soothing fragrance reminiscent of fresh flowers, typical of harvests from the clonal tea bushes. The flavor is mellow and smooth.

the 2014 FF pluck from my subcription box tasted average.

This review is for the 2015 FF- and soooo much better than last year’s flush.
Floral, with a buttery note. Even got hints of coriander and a greenish sweetness.

Excellent FF. Don’t oversteep!

400th tasting note :)

I am plowing through my sample stash at an amazing rate. Mostly because I’ve realized that I get a ton of tea with this subscription, and it is mostly stuff that I think is ok but not amazing. Which is good – it is a learning process, figuring out tea tastes. And preferences do change over time. But it also means that I use Christmas to rehome my nearly-full samples with friends who are unlikely to purchase tea themselves, who love the exact flavors I dislike.

It is still an insane goal…but I am actually wondering if I can clear out the sample box by the time I hit my 1 yr steepster anniversary, January 5. It is probably not doable but I am home a lot now while I wait for my certification to come in, and am dog sitting over the holidays. It would be very exciting if I could.

This tea was surprising in how intensely floral it was. It wasn’t like drinking perfume though because there was a sweetness to it as well that was interesting. Still not a favorite, like many in this subscription, but props to this one for being more unique than many of the others.

From the August GTT subscription box.

This is a decent first flush, but it’s from last year, so I wonder if it’s lost a lot of its flavor already because it seems kind of flat. It feels like it wants to be more flavorful, but it just isn’t there.

It’s easy drinking, though, and keeping me company as I work. I can’t work with a bad tea because it actually distracts me too much. This one works.
