drank Yunnan Golden Tips by t Leaf T
62 tasting notes

Lovely black tea from the Yunnan province. I could drink this as an everyday tea, no maltiness (that I dislike) and can resteep even if it does lose a little flavour. I can easily brew 2 two-person teapots using just a rounded teaspoon of the tea leaves. First brew had slight resemblance to something in the loose leaf pu-erh I drank last night from the same company. Possibly they sourced it from the same place. I found this familiarity comforting. If I was given some of this in a blind taste test I could probably tell this is Yunnan going by the flavour alone (which is something seeing I’m still somewhat of a tea newbie).

It’s not all tips but a mixture, but it’s price does not suggest it should be all tips. I am going to venture into some of t Leaf T’s other black tea types that are hopefully not malty.
