drank Yunnan Golden Tips by T2
28 tasting notes

A ‘premium’ tea from T2 that I took home as a sample and then seemed to disappear from the website before I had time to purchase some! And what a shame – because this tea is a winner! Its appearance is similar to Grand Yunnan but its flavour is far more complex and floral. On the lighter side of Chinese black teas (which is the side I like to be on) this tea is delicate, complex and well balanced.

Aroma: Delicate and enticing. Subtle dried orange peel and rose petal, with a slight woody undertone.

Palate: Delicious. Delicately sweet and complex. More ‘floral and fruity’ than ‘dark and woody’ but very well balanced. Beautiful rose petal notes and subtle marmalade. Good length.

Overall: This tea really impressed me. I feel like the flavour profile of this tea would be great cold-steeped but I finished mine before I got a chance to try it!

Flavors: Floral, Wood

Tea Glorious Tea!

Since a trip to Japan as a young lad I have had a growing obsession with tea. Oolongs are my all time favorite but I love almost all green and white teas and love trying anything new.

I’m just starting out on Steepster but am looking forward to uploading a whole bunch of teas in the future!

I’m always keen to review sample teas so please PM me if you would like some reviews done!
