From Tealyra

From the website:

Our Yunnan Golden Special is an organic black tea grown and cultivated by craft tea farmers with a distinguished history going back for many generations. Yunnan Golden Special is cultivated at the highest altitudes in a cool climate that is home to natural woodland, it is harvested between the end of March and the middle of April.
The leaves are mesmerizing to behold, they are bright gold and similar at first glance to tobacco leaves. Yunnan Golden Special produces a bright copper coloured cup that yields a buttery. strong, malt flavor, with finishing cinnamon notes. This is an awe inspiring black tea with the signature soft earthy Yunnan signature character that can be enjoyed for multiple infusions.

Thank you Sil for sharing but this was nothing special. Smooth. Fine. Meh. Am I not a golden Yunnan fan? I’m starting to think that’s just not my fave.

Well this is just delicious!

Tealyra really make it sound amazing in the description on the web site, so my expectations were high (I wondered if they were embellishing a bit?) – but wow, they are pretty much spot on.

Golden Monkey / Golden-tipped tea is easily one of my favourite styles, mostly due to how caramelly and smooth it is, and this tea is no exception.

On the nose you get sweetness, caramel, and the slightest whiff of hay. I don’t like golden-tipped teas that taste too much like hay, but here I’m in luck, because when tasting you get a very high amount of natural sweetness, some caramel, and very little hay.

This is a lovely tea. I would say that it’s very sweet, and I’m not always in the mood for that, but the fact that it’s a natural sweetness is pretty amazing. I’ll be dipping into this one until it runs out.
