Yunnan Golden Buds
Origin: Yunnan, China
Flavor Profile: Smooth, sugary flavor with nuances of baked sweet yams, caramel, and raisins. Swirling aromas of black currants, damp tobacco, and a fleeting hint of lightly buttered popcorn.
Tea Story: Our highest grade black tea, Yunnan Golden Bud is composed of pure leaf buds that are hand harvested from Yunnan’s antique tea trees. Delicate processing and even oxidation result in a lovely golden leaf style that yields a incomparable baked sweetness that your mouth will sing for.
Fortunate are those who witness the unfolding of these wiry golden leaves. This tea is a staff favorite and the apex of complex Chinese black tea.
Food Pairing: Pair this unrivaled black tea with homemade biscuits saturated with butter and topped with homemade plum and chile preserve. The buttery, fruity sweetness will be an exquisite union. Or drink the Yunnan Golden Bud while enjoying desserts of the cooked milk variety: tres leches, flan, panna cotta, creme brulee, or cannele bordelais.
