Had a bit of a stomach bug this morning so no maocha for me. finished off my sample of 2013 bai sha xi “run zhi fu” fu zhuan from @yunnan_sourcing.
i cannot say if it was the golden flowers or not in this tea but my stomach is all better now. i don’t typically buy health benefits in tea but golden flowers (also called jin hua or eurotium cristatum) have had a bit of research done on them and they are effective against certain bacteria. my stomach also seems to love them. other people’s stomachs don’t. your mileage may vary but this tea isn’t expensive to sample.
really though, this is just a tasty tea. it’s got a very nice honey flavor and i’m actually tasting lots of fruit in it for the first time today.
