My stash of yunnan black gold is running low,

i'm looking for a yunnan black with alot of flavor, with low-medium
"astringency"/"tannin"
maybe if it has any lingering smoky sensations is good !

(cant order from overseas stores-YSLLC, teaspring, as USPS is not
reliable)

I enjoyed the Yunnan Gold Tips from Ito-En. Product code 252.

Good luck!

Also liked the Xiang Luo (keemun) from Upton (ZK85). This had some
slight spicy tones while I think the Ito-en Yunnan Gold Tips was a bit
smoky.

I know it is customary to castigate one's own postal service (I admit
doing so myself) but to be fair my company Nothing But Tea over the
past five years has shipped many hundreds of teas and accessories
orders by mail to the USA without ever having a single complaint about
non delivery or damage. Our experience may be an exception to the
rule but the USA is consistenly our second largest customer
destination and that certainly could not be so if USPS were so
unreliable as to exclude ordering from overseas.

I hesitate to promote it but our NBT Tippy Yunnan is one of the only
two teas I ever take with me when traveling - fits your description
precisely, and well worth a try.

Hehe, no need for hesitation -- it's out of stock. :P

I've been drinking lot of delicious golden teas lately, so it's a
shame I can't try that one. The leaves are beautiful:

(I finally got around to ordering some of the Georgian teas, though.)

That does look good although I haven't had a chance to try it yet
myself. I've been very happy with all of the tea I've gotten from
HouDe. You also can't beat that price for a high quality tea.

Sorry - do you guys have a link to that Jin Si above?

I fell in love a long time ago with Yun Nan Hong Cha - but it's been many years since I've found a good one. In the early 90's it was easy to find good ones. I particularly was fond of the 'fresh cracked pepper' flavor of the tea. I know hong cha is not very popular in China, but I hope there's a turn around someday! Now I settle for #2 Ten Ren or Rishi's.

When I was in Guang Zhou in the summer of 2006 I bought a kilo of some excellent Yun Nan - but I should have written down the name of the shop so I could post some to the states!!! It was a teashop in an alley by the street markets by the White Swan.

Cheers
Geoff
