From TeaGschwendner

Although lesser known than Yunnan Province among black tea connoisseurs, Hunan Province offers spectacular small lot selections. These stunning, wiry, golden tips will not disappoint those accustomed to classic Chinese black tea character. A rusty, sienna cup offers full-bodied, malty notes of molasses, maple, and earth with a smooth finish.

Preparation: Two heaping teaspoons per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 3 minutes. Multiple infusions are possible.

See Jim.
See Jim with the last of his prized golden needles.
See Jim steep the golden needles.
See Jim get an urgent business call and forget to set a timer.
See Jim horribly, horribly over steep the tea which he forgot about.
See Jim weep bitter tears into his bitter tea.

Cry Jim, cry.
