From Yunnan Sourcing

Lightly processed to enhance it’s subtle and complex character, the Golden Guan Yin (金观音) Da Hong Pao is a rare treat. The taste is thick and sweet, with a strong lasting mouth-feeling that is expansive. The smell is penetrating with notes orchids and fresh betel nut.

This is a high end daily drinker. Looking at this as it’s $9 for 50g… not what I expected. It’s really good. The sweetness is evident with each sip though it is complex because there is a roast profile in front of it all.
Easily brewed. Cheap. Tasty.

There’s nothing more I can ask from this tea honestly, it exceeds what I had expected. I would regard this as a daily drinker and good to put a little aside for the fun, but if I were to share a cup of YS oolong with friend it would still be the Iron Arhat which has true depth to it. Probably going to look at getting more of this for work.

Just the smell of this is divine. As someone who adds sweetener to nearly every tea I drink, this one doesn’t need it. It’s that amazing.

A lighter, floral oolong from heaven.
