“This was the other free sample in my Tao Tea Leaf order. And lemme say…I’m really glad this was JUST a sample. xD So far every other tea has been good that I tried. Just not this one. Haha There...” Read full tasting note

Our Golden Yunnan is made from the ancient tea trees of Yunnan. Known for their robust and strong flavours these leaves make the prefect foundation for this tea. Golden Yunnan perfectly blends the resilient flavour of the mature leaves and the sweet delicate taste of the buds. This results in a wonderfully full bodied flavour. The tea is rich, malty and warm with a fruity almost nutty sweetness.

Region: Lincang, Yunnan Province, China.

Other Names: Dianhong Tea. Yunnan Hong Cha.
