About Yunan Gold Honey:

Golden Honey Aroma is a Mid-March harvested black tea grown in the Ning'er area of Simao. It's an old varietal that is referred to as 老号 (lit. old type), which has been grown in this area by several families for a few decades, although the varietal is much older and is likely close to pure assamica.

The tea is sweet with honey, dried cherry and orchid notes. It is thick and juicy, with a hint of chocolatey maltiness, all wrapped up in a tea soup that has a long-lasting viscous mouthfeel. Your sense of smell will not be left out of the enjoyment, either, as the aroma of this tea is indeed very strong. Honey and dried fruit characters abound, making this tea more than worthy of its name, Golden Honey Aroma!

A delicious tea that is sure to delight and awaken the senses!

It really smells like honey!

I got a sample of this because I was intrigued by the name and description. It seemed like a good addition to my little "tea diary" as I try out lots of different varieties. Yunan Gold Honey really does have a strong honey fragrance and a moderately malty flavor. It's easy to drink, lacks astringency, and it re-steeps well.

The aroma is definitely the star of the show. It won't fill your whole house, but you'll smell it.
