From TeaSource

These gorgeous, long leaves produce a cup that is medium to full-bodied and complex with astoundingly sweet, floral notes and dark, earthy undertones. Lingers on your taste buds.

Many moons ago, TeaSource had this AMAZING tea called Golden Mao Feng that was the best black tea I’ve ever had in my life! Since then, I keep trying every tea they put out with “golden” in the name, trying to recapture that magic. While this one isn’t the holy grail, it is a smooth, sweet, easy-to-drink black tea with delicious notes of brown sugar and sweet potato. Also re-steeps beautifully! Sad to be finishing it off today.

I think all of us veterans have a tea grail to pursue :)

I miss Golden Mao Feng so much!

Inkling

@gmathis Haha, probably true!

@Mastress Alita…So cool to find someone else who remembers that one! I feel like TeaSource isn’t as well-known on Steepster as they deserve to be. So many good teas!

Even though I’m in Idaho and TeaSource is in Missouri, it is the shop that my local coffee haunt (and the only coffee haunt in town that offers proper, loose leaf tea) wholesales their tea selections from. They don’t offer their whole catalog, but for a time, the Golden Mao Feng was on the menu, and since I love Chinese Blacks, I ordered it a lot. I daresay I may have been the only one that depleted Twin Beans of their stock, heh.

I do know that The Tao of Tea has a Golden Mao Feng, but I have yet to order/try it. I’ve been on order hiatus for a long time now until I actually clear out all the tea I currently have while it just keeps getting older.

Thanks for the tip! I’ve never ordered from Tao of Tea, but may have to give that a try at some point. :)
