    Cute name and nice taste

    Beautiful golden leaves that shine with warm glow, it is a pleasure to look at. Smooth malty flavour that matches when I first had a high quality black tea from a much pricier option.

    Lovely tea

    Yunnan loose leaf teas can vary widely, a bit hit and miss. Good ones can be flowery, or spicey, or even similar to the cocoa tinged Keemuns that seem to be more uniform. I have paid this much for a very forgettable flavorless Yunnan tea which can be a big disappointment. This one has a slight flowery aroma, hint of sweetness, light body for a black tea but smooth and refined. It was a definite step up from our basic grade Keemun we often have at daily breakfast. A bit expensive but will probably reorder

    This is my new favorite tea! I always have at least six black tea varieties on hand at all times and keep coming back to this one, regardless of the time of day. The large leaves provide a very fine flavor that holds up well with the addition of milk. My prior source of Yunnan tea quit supplying it, and I was doubtful of finding a new one. But Teadaw's Yunnan is even better!!! I recommend it wholeheartedly!

    A nice red Needle Yunan

    A nice Golden Yunan Black tea. Good honey-like flavor, as Yunans do. Decent quality and you can get several steepings from each serving. Tealyra is also organic which is good for tea - avoid those pesticides when you can.

    Mild Floral Organic Yunnan Great Buzz

    Sweet, Strong, Great Flavor--ORGANIC! Love this tea as a caffeine and taste replacement for coffee, sometimes. Very bold and sweet flavored and packed with a strong high buzz. Beautiful tea, too; long leaves, very clean on the palette, and its organic, which is critical to not being poisened by chemicals from China.
