Golden Yunnan from Arbor Teas


Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: Arbor Teas

Product Description:

This exquisite black tea hails from the Jing Mai Mangjing region of China’s southwestern Yunnan province, made from the 1300-year-old tea trees found there – some of the oldest living tea trees in the world. The people of Jing Mai Mangjing’s high mountain tea villages climb their ancient tea trees to harvest the new growth leaves and buds used to create this organic and Fair Trade Certified tea. It is quite tippy, rich with golden buds and large, delicately twisted leaves. The full-bodied infusion is deep red with a molasses-like sweetness, a subtle milkiness and light coppery finish.

Ingredients: organic Chinese black tea

Suggested serving size: one level teaspoon

Tasters Review:

I’m having a really hard morning and I had a different tea planned for this morning’s review but since I am now on my 3rd cup of this for the day I thought I would pay tribute to the tea that is helping ease my frustrations.  Don’t you just LOVE how teas can do that!?  Comfort you!  I’m so thankful for tea!  Anyhow…on to the review…

This infuses VERY dark brown.  It’s a bold brew and full of malty goodness!  It’s a great wake-me-up tea and multiple infusions were successful – at least for me they were!  It smells a little bakey but doesn’t really taste chewy, per say, but it IS a delightfully strong cup!  This is a good, solid Golden Yunnan with a slight milky-smooth aftertaste especially on the 2nd and 3rd infusion!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
