From Norbu Tea

This Black Gold is another excellent & affordable black tea from Yunnan Province. It is composed entirely of hand picked Spring 2009 materials. Whole juicy new growth tea leaves & gold buds from tea plantations in Xishuangbanna in the far south of Yunnan Province were used to make this tea, giving it a lovely black & gold appearance.

The flavor of this tea is typical of a Dian Hong Black tea, in that it is malty, floral, and mildly sweet. It is a bit more bold & astringent than our other black teas, but its assertiveness makes it a great morning eye-opener. The steeped liquor is also crystal clear, making it a perfect chioce for serving iced.

Wonderfully malty and toasty overtones that linger on the tongue :) Steeping in the western fashion and drinking hot.
