From TeaSource

These tightly curled golden leaves yield a cup that is very rich and smooth, with a hint of a dark cocoa/caramel note. Sometimes called Golden Snail, this tea is almost never seen in the west.

Another fantastic Chinese black tea from TeaSource! This one is very similar to Golden Snail from Whispering Pines: tightly curled black leaves with tons of golden tips that give off a rich, malty scent. It has a dense, chewy flavor with notes of baked bread and honey. It can be re-steeped multiple times before it starts losing it’s flavor. I don’t love it quite as much as their Golden Mao Feng, but it’s definitely a lovely option and very affordable!

I’m still pretty new to black teas, but I was pleased with this. It wasn’t overly strong and had a bit of sweetness and body that I like. The tea leaves are curled as in the description, with enough tip to be noticeable at first glance. Makes for an excellent tea to enjoy throughout the day.
