In honor of my sweet baby boy’s 1st birthday, I wanted to pick a tea that has as much personality as he does! This Golden Guanyin Red Spring is one of my favorite black teas. Its smooth and naturally sweet character make it comforting, inviting, and charming. The mouthfeel is strong and full, and there are definite notes of chocolate and raisin nuances. Chinese black teas tend to taste more “chocolate-y” in general, and this Golden Guanyin does not disappoint. The leaves are fully oxidized and consistent in size, which shows that a lot of TLC went in to hand-picking this tea.

Perfect tea to sip as you reflect on the end of summer and start the beginning of a new, crisp season!
