From TeaSpring

Yunnan Pure Gold is Yunnan province’s first ever Black tea. It was created in 1938 using high quality tea leaves from Fengqing county. This tea was originally to be named Yunhong following common practice of naming Black teas in China – where Qimen county (Anhui province) has “Qihong”, and Yichang county (Hubei province) has “Yihong”. However, Yunnan Tea Company later changed it to Dianhong (the Chinese name of Yunnan Pure Gold). “Dian” is the short name of Yunnan.
Other names:
Dian Hong

Taste:
Exceptionally smooth and delicate tea, with hint of malty taste. Blends well with sweetened milk for added flavor.

Appearance:
The leaves are purely golden in color and the infusion is amberish/yellow color.

Origin:
Yunnan Province

As I sip my fresh cup of Yunnan Pure Gold I am whisked away to an ancient Chinese temple, deep in a mountain gorge. My Sherpa guide is tending the fire and fragrances of burning pine bows and sandalwood lick my nostrils. The dimming mountain vistas around our camp lie silent. As dusk falls, and the Mongolian winter slides down from a northern mountain face, I sip my Yunnan Pure Gold, which is reminiscent of the earth, the woods, and mountain life.

Did you mean “…our camp lay silent.”? You are so ignorant of English, Steve.
