A standout example from China’s foremost black tea region, Yunnan Gold appeals to gourmets and connoisseurs alike with its striking golden tips. A bright and beautiful wake-up call, this hidden gem indulges the palate with rich, malty waves of dark chocolate and caramel.

China’s southwestern province of Yunnan, situated “south of the clouds,” is one of the said regions of origin of the tea tree. Home to the large-leafed camellia sinensis assamica, it is these buds and tender leaves that are processed entirely by hand in early spring to produce an exceptional black tea variety – famous for its natural honey-sweetness and its gilded beauty. Picked at altitudes of up to 2100 m (6900 ft.), the golden tips not only boast an extra-high content of amino acids and invigorating caffeine, but also delight connoisseurs and gourmets alike with rich, malty waves of dark chocolate and caramel.

This is a great tea. From the first steep until the (NOT) bitter (AT ALL) end, it’s smooth and full-bodied, with an earthiness as well as the subtle honey notes I’ve come to expect from a Yunnan Gold. No need to add anything to it, although I could see putting a bit of milk in it after a long steep. Love this tea.
