Tea Review: Yunnan Golden Bud - Da (Experience Tea)

Yunnan Golden Bud - Da
Experience Tea
Type: Black
Origin: China, Yunnan Province
Product Description: All Golden Bud teas are not created equal and this is a large-leaf version that is quite different from my other GB. It is complex and naturally sweet with cocoa and citrus notes on the front, finishing with a lovely honey expression. This tea easily steeps two times and with patience, probably three.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a sweet aroma with notes of grapes, oats, honey, and a hint of wood.

The copper red infusion has an aroma of sweet oats, dark bread, honey, and a hint of cocoa.  The taste is sweet and savory with notes of mixed grains, and honey with  a prune-like finish.

The best results are in the first two infusions which are delightfully rich and flavorful.

This tea was purchased by me.
