Good, and ridiculously smooth (even smoother than normal Yorkshire Tea, which is a strange thing to consider!). Not sure if I like it more or less than YT—-think maybe they’re just two teas for two different moods.

However, you absolutely HAVE to make sure you don’t leave this tea to steep unattended! I tend to drink tea in large quantities; usually I’ll pour a travel-sized mug even when I’m at home, just because I like to take my tea and drink it while I write (I write for a living). Therefore, in some instances, I’ll steep tea a little longer than I otherwise might because I like my tea strong.

With YT Gold, to do that is to invite extreme bitterness. This tea is NOT forgiving if you overbrew it. As long as you brew it for a short amount of time, you’ll have a remarkably smooth experience. Very caffeinated, as others have mentioned.
