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.

Seems like I got this FOREVER ago from Rachel Sincere! Thanks very much!
This is a nice, bold Yunnan black with lots of black peppercorn flavor, and a bit of yam and sugarcane. The leaves are sort of medium sized for a Yunnan black, and mostly chocolate brown/black in color with some golden buds mixed in.
I’ve been blending it with Fengqing dian hong, which is milder and yamier, and it makes a for a nice balance of flavor.
Brewing this in my new(ish) yixing, and I’ve had to use about double the amount of tea that I normally would. So far its still sucking up a LOT of the flavor, more than my other two did. The side effect of using so much tea is a major caffeine high, which, admittedly is pretty nice when studying for exams :)
