From Yunnan Sourcing

Spring 2012 tea leaves (1 leaf to 1 bud) from Feng Qing area of Lincang were carefully hand-processed into this lovely tea. The tea brews up a golden yellow clear color with malt and chocolate flavors and aroma. A lovely tea both in taste and appearance! Similiar in processing to our “Black Needle” this “Gold Needle” tea features prominent buds and a robust malty flavor!

I should have ordered a LOT more of this tea. It was the first bag I opened when the package arrived and I told myself “I’ll try this one first and later…” I almost went through the bag before I moved on. The leaves smell like sugar and hints of chocolate, when steeped it inverts into chocolate scent with hints of chocolate, Tea continues to riddle me. The taste is very malty with glorious chocolate taste and hints of sugar.

This tea is the one that made me glad I got a portable brewer. Takes several steeps and its very forgiving, EVEN COLD BREWED is amazing!!!! (Gong fu style or western it rocks).
