“The finest Yunnan gold bud tea you are likely to taste. The heady combination of caramel, chocolate, and pu-erh-like earthiness floors me every time. Stockpile this tea; Yunnan Sourcing’s prices...” Read full tasting note
“[Spring 2019 harvest] This is one of those Yunnan teas that started the golden bud craze of the recent decades. It seems that I, as many other tea drinkers, while liking this tea quite a bit...” Read full tasting note


This rare and beautiful tea can only be made from 2nd flush of spring tea (early April) taken from established plantation bushes in the Mojiang area of Simao. 2nd flush is used because the leaves and buds are bigger and hairier than early spring. The tea is carefully processed to keep its lovely appearance and guard its subtle sugarcane and malt flavors. This is an incredible and rare tea with an appearance and taste that will dazzle the drinker!Recommend using 85-90C water to brew this wonderful tea. Wash once briefly (5 seconds) and then drink the successive infusions. Keep infusion times very short initially!

Harvest Area: Mojiang Town, Simao Prefecture of Yunnan
