Golden Snail - Spring 2017

$8.50

This Yunnan black tea was harvested in early spring (2016) and carries a rich, delicious flavor profile! The dry leaf aroma smells of chocolate pastries and a touch of malt. Wet leaf aroma is similar but there is a light fruit note...perhaps peach. The first thing you taste is immensely sweet, mouth-coating thick honey and warm bready notes giving way to rich creamy cocoa and malt. A heavy molasses-like sweetness lingers on your tongue while notes of maple syrup, sweet potato, and gardenia weave through the finish. A very smooth tea — if not oversteeped there will be absolutely no bitterness or astringency. A customer favorite, Golden Snail is our top-selling pure tea!

Compared to previous years: Smoother, sweeter, more chocolaty, and cleaner tasting tea overall!
