I have been drinking this tea for a few years. It is one of my favorite. To be fair, this tea does taste better than the Yunnan Golden Special. I tried both of them at the beginning with 50g each and chose to stay with this one for a few years. This one is winner for sure.

Nothing really special for this price. This tea is just like any other black tea. However, the Organic Yunnan Golden Special is so much tasty for a cheaper price. I won’t buy it again.

My favorite tea, has a rich but not overpowering taste. Good enough to convince me to buy an 8oz bulk bag.

Excellent tea, one of the best indeed. Extremely high quality, wonderful flavor, pleasant aftertaste. Excellent service and communication as well. Tealyra sent the tea promptly, it was correctly packed and we enjoyed our cup the same evening!

Took me a while to find this type of tea, once I did I was hooked. This would be up there with my favourite tea. Tealyra version is very nice and very well priced as well which is great for a high-quality tea like this. If you have never tried this type of tea you must give it a go now, you wont be disappointed.

This is delicious! The flavor is smooth and my favorite black tea ever. The aroma of the tea is terrific and I can steep three times with great flavor each time. Just a touch of stevia, steeped at 190 for 3 minutes. Perfect cup of tea.

This is a great tea. My favorite black tea so far. Floral fragrance and taste. I sometimes blend this with Milk Jin Xuan Taiwanese Oolong. I call the blend "Monkey Butter" ;)
