From Yunnan Sourcing

Golden Honey Aroma is a Mid-March harvested black tea grown in the Ning’er area of Simao. It’s an old varietal that is referred to as 老号 (lit. old type), which has been grown in this area by several families for a few decades, although the varietal is much older and is likely close to pure assamica.

The tea is sweet with honey, dried cherry and orchid notes. It is thick and juicy, with a hint of chocolatey maltiness, all wrapped up in a tea soup that has a long-lasting viscous mouthfeel. Your sense of smell will not be left out of the enjoyment, either, as the aroma of this tea is indeed very strong. Honey and dried fruit characters abound, making this tea more than worthy of its name, Golden Honey Aroma!

A delicious tea that is sure to delight and awaken the senses!

This is a very aromatic and enjoyable Dian Hong. The aromas are indeed quite complex, with notes of dried fruits and honey. It feels a little harsh and somewhat (not a lot) less smooth and more astringent than most Dian Hongs but maybe that’s also because it’s only 5 months old?

I’m not sure how to describe this tea. It’s not a honey aroma in the sense that I’m used to (thinking leaf hopper, Taiwan teas) but it’s a pretty good malty, slightly cocoa-y, bready tea. I need to play with this a little more and have a few cups but I think this will land on my “could have often” list.

Two months of waffling around on this while trying to use up all 100 grams and now I’m head over heels for it. Thought I’d get bored after a few cups, but no, I have to stop myself from grabbing this when making tea for work because I’ve developed something of an addiction. It tastes like orchids and chocolate and honey and I can’t stay away. Never liked a tea enough to reorder 8.8 ounces of it, but here we are.
