There has been a lot said about “Golden Eyebrow” tea; it seems to have a reputation, and to be difficult to get outside of China. I have to say that my part-purchase of samples with Liquid Proust was worth it just so that I got to try this tea! I actually tried it as the third in the line up from his tea tasting event yesterday, and I’m very much looking forward to playing around with the steeping parameters of this loverly sample! In the cup I had, I noted a sugary sweetness, but with earthy, slightly minerally supporting notes, and a green-ness that lingers on the tongue. It reminded me of a less heavy-handed rock oolong, minus the amber part of the rock sugar taste, but with some of the purported sheng puerh notes thrown in. Complex and artful, and definitely worth a more thorough exploration!
