americangoldenhimalyanOne of my favorite parts of ordering teas is how David, the owner, always includes some extra samples for me to check out and review. This time around, it is almost as he had read my mind as I have really been on a black tea kick lately.

This is really a gorgeous black tea with the leaves ranging from a honey gold to a dark chocolate. The leaves are rather large for a black tea so I do recommend weighing out the tea leaves. They don't really have much of an aroma when dry.

Following the suggestions on the package, I set it up to steep using 200 degree water and a time of 2 minutes. The resulting liquor is fairly light for a black tea and is a light golden brown. It now has a fragrance of sweet potatoes and tobacco.

This tea is a real treat. With a heavier mouth feel, this tea has a natural sweetness like clover honey. I am also have to pick up nuances of yams and just a hint of malt. This is a very smooth tea without any astringency and bitterness even though I did let it over-steep the second time around.

You do pay more for this tea but when you consider that it can be resteeped up to three times, it is a really good buy. I very much enjoyed this delightful tea and have it on my list for the next time I place an order.

Special Offer! Free shipping on all purchases over $50 from AmericanTeaRoom.com.
