mmm having a cup of this courtesy of my dear friend in Florida. I am enjoying this one quite a bit this morning. Hoping for a few sipdowns today but we’ll see how things go. May just dig into my reserve club teas today sicne i’m on my own to putter around the house :)
Golden Heaven Yunnan
A delicious tea that’s outstanding with milk, our Golden Heaven Yunnan China Black tea is something to look at! Composed of tippy, neat, wiry, and well-made leaves, this tea is characterized by its shape, color, aroma, and malty taste. This tea produces a bright reddish cup with a brisk, fragrant aroma. One of the highest quality teas available from Yunnan Province, it is made during the last 2 weeks of March and the first 2 weeks of April, delivering a brighter golden tip. Known as one of the worlds great teas, this tea is perfect on its own, but also takes a bit of milk or sugar well, as it helps to capture the malty character.
For the best brew, Golden Heaven Yunnan should steep in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 3-7 minutes.
