I’ve tried two different lots of this tea and loved them both (though the first lot from last fall was a little richer). Typically smooth and sweet, and earthy after a 4-5 minute steeping, I drink this tea any time during the day. Frankly, other than fine darjeelings, or lapsang suchongs I find myself drinking gold bud Yunnan teas almost every time I drink black tea.

I love tea and living in a place that is cold or cool nine months of the year, tea is a constant source of warmth and education. I always drink tea straight and rarely drink flavored teas or Tisanes, except for the occasional Rooibos. I’m a proud father of two young boys, an avid skier, motorcyclist, reader, and runner. I have a doctorate in English (dissertation on Emily Dickinson.)
