Brewing Suggestions
 
The Hunan province is known for many things, especially its spicy food and excellent teas. For example, this beautifully hand-crafted black tea features shimmering gold tippy leaves, an elegantly sweet, mild caramel flavor, and that ever elusive smooth textured mouth-feel that is more often than not missing in action. This is a work of art that will be perfect as a traditional “milk and sugar” tea or as a multi- steeping modern tea that pleases anytime and anywhere.

Unexpected July 13, 2018
Reviewer: Steve Fox from Denver, CO United States  
Each regional tea offers diverse sensations from the same basic plant.  Some flavors develop from weather and soil, and some from production variations.  Hunan is better known for its hot peppery cooking, but tea has yet to distinguish itself from other regions.  This tea surprised me.  It possessed a bright clean flavor with warm undertones.  Perhaps I should have expected the warmth, as its appearance was similar to Golden Monkey - - a combination of light brown mixed with deep browns in a silky blend.  While not as powerful a taste and scent as the Golden Monkey, it is a refreshing black tea that can stand on its own.

An excellent new black tea May 27, 2015
Reviewer: Dennis Emberling from Canyon Country, CA United States  
I found 2-1/2 tsp. at 190 degrees F for 2 minutes to be just right.

I think it smells something like the Aged Hong Mei Mao Feng - like plums - even when dry, but more so when slightly dampened.

I agree with Roy's description: sweet, mild caramel flavor. Delicious.
