From Simon Levelt

De vele gouden tips in deze Yunnan zorgen voor een thee met een gouden glans. Zoet met intens aroma.

Deze ‘Golden Tips’ van Yunnan is het neusje van de zalm. Zoete en sappige thee met tonen van honing en caramel. Thee komt oorspronkelijk uit de provincie Yunnan in zuidwest China. Al eeuwenlang produceert men hier groene thee. De zwarte thee behoort momenteel tot de beste van de wereld.

Oh my, this tea….

It starts with the long, partially golden, unbroken leaves. After brewing, the tea has a very nice, dark brown chestnut-like colour. It smells sweet, with a hint of honey. The scent is very interesting, as it does not reflect the taste of the tea 1 on 1.

The tea has a very recognisable flavour profile. It’s sweet and malty at the same time. The maltyness is followed by a wooden tone. It also has a fruity, grape-like flavour at the end of the sip. Despite steeping it for a normal to long period, it has no bitterness whatsoever. One of my favorite China black teas for daily use. Strongly reccommended!

A nice Chinese black, especially for its price. Suits me well as an everyday tea, in addition to the more expensive teas I usually order from webshops (which really aren’t always better than this one).

Also interesting for beginning tea drinkers, due to its distinctive, recognizable flavour profile. It is fruity, in a very distinctly raisin- or grape-like way. A tea that is hard to overbrew, no bitterness and hardly any astringency. In fact I would have liked a little more astringency, since for my taste the sweetness and softness could use some ‘harder’ counterpart to really balance this tea out.

Long leaves that look great dry as well as wet.
