This is the first tea I am sampling from the amazing box of black, oolong, puerh, etc that I got in my swap with Nofar.

I love Dian Hong teas. They are so rich & buttery, & this one is right on the mark. It bears a very strong resemblance to our beloved Golden Fleece, with nice thick leaves in shades of gold, olive, & caramel. The flavor is rich, from the rinse water all the way through the final steeping. Gentle, sweet, thick. What does Amber taste like? Sunlight? For awhile I get a sense of Bee Pollen. I love teas like this. The flavor of mushrooms sauteed in Mirin. The flavor of honeysuckle in a later steeping. And I keep steeping. This is what I needed.


Yay! So glad that you liked it. This is from a little tea shop in Portobello road market. They also have an online store, but the store itself is a little treasure.

Had a lovely cup of this, this afternoon. This is a wonderful Dian Hong, silky sweet, rich, with no astringency and notes of chocolate, sugar and honey. I love the little shop it came from in Portobello and I can’t recommend it enough.

After a few days of quiet, I was woken at 6AM on a Saturday by the rocket warning sirens. They were loud and went on for a good five minutes. Dogs started barking like crazy as people left their apartments in their pyjamas and huddled for shelter in the stairwell. Not the best way to start the weekend.


Wow, I can’t imagine how frightening that would be. Take care!


I am so sorry. I pray you will be safe!
