Yunnan Golden Curls from Adagio Teas has been a constant companion during the this chilly end of 2010. There is nothing quite like it to revitalize and warm you up. It is a pricey indulgence, but it there is a difference you can taste. The tea is soothing and delicious, and has a body/mouthfeel that one could compare to broth. Very smooth and full. It also has a sweet aftertaste that lingers well after one has finish their cuppa. The lovely little tea buds are of the best quality and can handle several infusions without losing color or flavor. Even if you brew them too long you will never get a bitter taste. I prefer to drink it with nothing added, but it can handle a little creamer and sweetener with ease.
Golden Curls is one of my top ten teas, and I'd encourage anyone who likes black/red teas to give it a try.
