A magnificent large leaf tippy Yunnan with the characteristic sweetness of black Yunnan teas.
Yunnan Gold black tea (also known as Dian Hong) is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips and savory cocoa and black pepper flavors. This artisan tea hails from the Yunnan province of China the birthplace of tea itself. Our high-grade Yunnan Gold is milk chocolate creamy and sweet with pleasant pepper notes. The flavor becomes earthier and more layered as it cools. Soft rounded cup silky and perfect. It is also a very forgiving tea and will not taste bitter when over-steeped. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island this golden Yunnan would be our clear choice.Makes a fabulous breakfast tea!
