From Whispering Pines Tea Company

As soon as I tasted our Guangxi Silver Needle, I knew I had to explore the Guangxi province more. After a few months of searching, I found another Guangxi gem!

An absolutely stunning black tea, Guangxi Gold has an intoxicating dry leaf aroma — malt, some flowers, and dried fruit. The taste is much the same but with the addition of creamed honey notes. This tea is very thick and textured in the mouth and has a long, sweet aftertaste with no hint of bitterness.

An excellent gold bud black tea that’s sure to please!

Derk, you made my day with this one! Long, blonde leaves that meld into cocoa and sweet wheat toast. Definitely my gold standard! Off to try a second steep.

(My husband is used to me sticking dry tea leaves under his nose for him to smell, but this morning, when I pulled the packet away, he said, “Wait a minute! I want to smell that again!” High praise.)


High praise, indeed!

Thank you Brenden! And thank you derk for putting up the page!

I really liked this sample. The leaves were fairly small, like hairs picked off from a golden fleece. I plowed through it quickly over two days and kept on drinking it semi western in a large 12 oz mug and in increments of 1-2 minutes. I’m sorry if I’ve lost the usual specific description for notes….I’ve been backlogging….and I have at least ten more teas to do or more.

Back to the tea. This one was more floral than normal for me compared to some other golden hong cha, but it was very satisfying. I got the same notes derk did in terms of the cocoa,grains, creamed honey, and pepper. I also got some fruity melon ones that were vague but noticeable like cantaloupe. The tea was still predominantly floral, sweet, cocoa, caramel, and balanced by even malt, though it was not overly tense like an Assam or even some Keemum. Viscosity was also nice, and while it was on the lighter end overall for a black, it still provided plenty of body. It’s personally been one of my favorite gold strands blacks from whispering pines so far.

Typical light and clean gold bud character. It has a very clear, pure malt grain taste and sweetness. gmathis mentioned burlap sack before, though in regards to Keemun. I get that note here plus a bit of lightly floral cocoa and some of that creamed honey Brenden mentions in his description. Second steep brings out baked bread and black pepper. Super smooth.

Now that’s an easy sipper.

Thanks for the sample, Brenden :)
