Golden Snail is one of those wonderful hand crafted black teas made in small production lots by a farm family in the mountains of Yunnan province.
Golden tippy leaves are curled into little spiral shapes, hence the name Golden Snail. The aroma is magnificent, and the tea liquor is rich and smooth. You can enjoy this tea at any time of day. I don’t get a sweet chocolate taste at all but more of the dark cocoa flavors bring to mind un-sweetened chocolate, but at the same time there is a lingering sweetness. This only confirms and continues my general adoration for black teas…Especially bold ones.
