My daily drinkers lately have been Adagio's Yunan Gold and Golden Monkey. The Yunan Gold is on par with what you can get at Yunnan Sourcing, and the Golden Monkey is probably a step below. I think it's just a weak batch. It has been better in the past. Just recently I bought their Formosa Bai Hao, which is an Oriental Beauty oolong. Smell is amazing, but flavor is a bit lacking. It did a little better bulk brewing than with the gaiwan, but I'm a little bit rusty. During the pandemic, while working from home, my daily caffeine was provided by Yorkshire Gold. In bags. And while working at the office? I drink coffee.

Yorkshire Gold is pretty damned good for a black teabag. Adding milk elevates the shit out of it. Mine you, It's possibly nostalgia from drinking so much of that when I was in York.
