I recently picked up a few teas from Ocean of Tea, and this was the first one I had to try — Yunnan Gold. This is a black tea from Yunnan, China (where else?) characterized by soft golden tips on the leaves.
This is a really smooth and full-bodied tea with no bitterness or astringency. There’s a slight sweetness here that’s reminiscent of raisins and chocolate with a bit of a peppery aftertaste. It’s not quite Raisinetes, but you know what I mean. If you’re looking to upgrade your daily Black tea to something a little more refined, pick this up!
