This tea is really good! It has a bready and raisiny aroma it tastes very smooth and somewhat chocolaty. My one complaint is that it’s very slightly astringent in the aftertaste.

I found this a pleasant tea to drink but it was not among my favorites. It was surprisingly different from its organic counterpart. Of the two, I strongly preferred this one.

The leaf is tightly rolled and quite beautiful. Compared to the organic version of this tea, it looks a little paler in color and slightly loo...

I love this tea! It’s very smooth and easy to drink, it’s not astringent. It has a dark toasty flavor and is very comforting to drink. It smells nice and bready too!

Sep. 10th, 2021

This tea was quite singular, unlike most of the other teas from Yunnan Sourcing. I thought it was a good tea but it was a bit too much for me. It's strong, both by flavor and caffeine. I am reviewing the Spring Harvest from 2020.

This tea took up a lot less space than most all the other Yunnan Teas I've tried. The d...

Yunnan "Assamica Gold Needle" Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Simao, Yunnan, China

96 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 7th, 2021

This was a straightforward tea that I found easy to like; I became a fan from the first sip. It's robust, easy to brew, easy to drink, and pleasing in both flavor and aroma. Overall, it is more flavorful than aromatic though.

The dry leaf is beautiful, a very bright yellow color, not as orangeish as many of these ti...

Sep. 4th, 2021

This was a robust green tea that was challenging to brew, but rewarding when I got it right. Thank you to Dewey for sharing this one with me!

The leaf is beautiful, wiry, slightly curly, and diverse in color, from dusty dark green to silvery-gray with a yellowish tinge. It has a potent fragrance, with a hint of camp...

This tea is soo good omg! The aroma is nice and sort of chocolatey smelling. The taste is smooth and a bit sweet. The tea is very thick bodied and it is not astringent or bitter at all.

Apr. 10th, 2021

This was a peculiar and rather fascinating tea, a real bargain buy, and a good afternoon tea.

The leaf is very large and has an aroma that is lightly malty, but also rather herbaceous. It smells more like green teas or raw Pu-erh than is typical for a black tea. Both its appearance and aroma remind me of some of the...

Feb. 25th, 2021

This tea is pretty good but not my favorite. It doesn't have a strong aroma but it smells nice like normal tea. The taste is pretty good but a tiny bit harsh for me as it has a slight amount of bitterness which I don't like as much. Still, It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea because it is so high quality so even ...

Nov. 4th, 2019

I was eager to try this tea based on its description. I love big-leafed black teas from Taiwan and also love Taiwanese oolongs, as well as Yunnan red teas, and this tea seemed to have something in common with all of these. It wasn't really like I expected though; it was quite good, but in a different way. It was my lea...

Oct. 27th, 2019

This is definitely my favorite tea I've ever ordered from Yunnan Sourcing, and one of the most exceptional teas I've ever tried. And this is coming from someone who usually is not a huge fan of the super-golden bud-heavy teas like this.

Opening the bag, there's an ethereal fragrance of flowers and sweet, bready malt...

Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.

I have had this tea in 2016 and now this year. It has a strong aroma with hints of sugar. It also has a sweet flavor and great mouthfeel.

Apr. 16th, 2016

Appearance: The dry leaf is intact, curled, and often intertwined with other leaves, making it hard to easily separate. The leaf is pure bud covered in a light golden-orange down that comes off on the fingers when handled without care. Some of the underlying dark-brown leaf is visible closer to the non-terminal end of ...

Dec. 29th, 2013

This was among the most interesting of the white teas I've tried, although more familiar and similar to typical white teas than moonlight white. E. Alex Gerster called this tea "sturdy" and I like that; I also want to thank him for providing me with this sample.

Dry leaf has a peculiar aroma, like caramel and overr...

Sep. 13th, 2013

Recently was able to restock my supply of this wonderful tea, after enjoying it on and off for the past two years. It is quite unique for a white tea, with light flavors and subtle complexities that change as the tea ages. Added a link to the Steepster page where I have added a few notes on this one. A "sturdy" white t...
