From Rishi Tea

Our finest grade of Dian Hong black tea, harvested from Mengku heirloom varietal tea trees in China’s southwestern Yunnan Province, the birthplace of tea. Masterfully oxidized into an auburn color flecked with golden buds, this black tea has an impressive strength, density and refined finish. Golden Yunnan has a richly textured infusion that offers hints of peppery spice, notes of chocolate and sweet lychee with a deep malty finish. This top-shelf black tea is delightful when served straight, and divine with milk and sugar.

Tasting Notes: Malty and rich with a mellow, jammy sweetness and subtle accents of plum and raisin

Ingredients: Organic black tea.

Additional Info: Classic black teas offer a timeless taste of tea’s rich history and express a distinct sense of place, determined not only by geography and climate, but also by culture and tradition.

This tea comes to us from the Wa Shan Ecological Tea Garden in Yunnan, China. Explore the tea and landscapes of Wa Shan in Rishi’s Travelogue.

Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4 minutes (1st infusion), 5 minutes (2nd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn’t recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
