From Zhi Tea

(also known as simply “Royal Gold”)

Our organic Royal Gold from Yunnan Province is the queen of China Black tea! This top-most grade is comprised entirely of gold-tipped new-growth spring buds that produce a gorgeous dark gold liquor infusion.

After harvesting, the organic buds are painstakingly hand-sorted, resulting in an exceptionally high-grade tea. When oxidized, these gorgeous buds turn gold rather than black and when steeped, release a rich, smooth flavor with lingering notes of honey, roasted almond, and bing cherry. The flavor will evolve through subsequent infusions (yes!). A royal treat.

This is awesome!

So rich and full-flavored. Overtures of cocoa with an undercurrent of burnt-sugar caramel, as I continue to sip, I notice hints of honeysuckle and fruit notes (sweet, juicy plum!) emerging. A really delicious, rich, warm tea … I love this!

Rich, smooth, fairly bold, a little nutty and fruity, too! Very nice selection from Yunnan!

The full name of this tea shown on is Royal Gold Yunnan Needle.

OK…I admit it - I’m a Yunnan gold tea junkie. I keep several different Yunnan golds in my tea closet, and I appreciate the subtle differences between them, but Royal Gold Yunnan Needle is consistently the best of the bunch. It is naturally sweet, with nuances of dried apricots, honey, and spice. It’s opulent, luxurious, seductive tea. Good for multiple infusions.
