At first glance – the Yunnan Fengqing Golden Buds Black Tea from What-Cha is long and twisty…one of my favorite kinds of black tea leave appearances. Dry this tea has notes of cocoa, apricot, and a near ‘brown sugared’ type sweet potato that are all very subtle but present to the nose.
Once infused – you’ll see a golden amber-hued liquor in your cup. Delightful!
A few notes to expect from this tea include dark cocoa with an earthy yet sweet raisin – but let’s not forget the woodsy factor – as well as the hint of apricot and butterscotch. The strength is ‘just right’ not weak but not overly bold. It’s well balanced with no astringency and a medium flavor that all contributes to the ‘party in your mouth’ type of tea.
This is another great black tea that offers multiple infusions which I really appreciate anytime of day! A very smooth texture – with levels of flavors – and a nice sweet malt taste on the end sip that lingers on to the after taste.
