I have been really impressed with many of the teas I have been able to try from Golden Tips Tea. They are very good about sending samples with orders, too, so if you see teas you have no ideas about and would like to explore new things, their sample offerings are a wonderful way to start. In addition, they offer packages featuring multiple teas which are another good way to explore the incredible abundance of teas offered by the company.

In this case, my sample of the day is a Fine Temi Sikkim Tea. The dry leaf presents a mixture of colors to the eye ranging from chocolate and black to gray green and silver. The dry leaf smells sweet and "high toned" to me - a bit cidery and sparkly sweet.

I infused one teaspoon of leaf to 8 ounces of just boiled water and infused for a strict 3 minutes. The tea is tawny and autumnal in color and tastes excellent. I'm immediately impressed by tart fruity notes reflecting berry and apples both. The tea is tart, crisp, fresh, pert, sweet and good. The finish is nice and dry but avoids being thin or reedy as the fruity flavors are bolstered by good body lingering fully into the close of each sip. There are also some slightly floral notes in the tea, as you might expect, but fruit takes the day here. I loved the autumnal nature of the tea. The sparkly scent of the dry leaf transforms into fall fruitiness at its best when infused. I really enjoyed every sip.
