|"Yummo, thumbs up! Creamy and malty with a touch of vanilla in this Golden Fleece. "|
Golden Fleece is a perfect name for this type of black tea. The leaves are golden downy buds, as the name implies, with hints of black. Golden Fleece is a Dianhong tea, which means it is a Chinese black tea grown in Yunnan providence. This tea may also be referred to as Yunnan Gold on other sites.
Some Golden Fleece, when brewed, expands to show a whole leave and bud, some are more broken. The highest quality would be a whole leave as well as wild picked, but there are not many wild picked teas out there. Teasenz's leaf is very much whole leave, with a few broken, and the majority with bud still attached. One tablespoon was used with water just off the boil and brewed for about 3 minutes. The resulting scent is very sweet and reminiscent of Fall honey. The taste is delicious, with a medium body this tea holds no punches. It's slightly creamy, with tastes of vanilla and malt. There is a slightly smoked flavor that comes with these leaves as well. In all honesty, I just can't get enough.
Highly Recommend, the price may be a bit steep, but you won't regret it!
