My Tea Importer sent a sample of this beautiful Black gold. The next day I ordered it as part of my new tea venture. I wanted to feature this smooth delight to my customers. You may want to buy this by the pound! Buying tea in larger amounts will save you money. Tea sellers want you to buy small amounts, they get even more money.
Perfectly 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.
Black teas from Yunnan are among the most robust and refined teas produced in the whole world! Typically Yunnan Black teas are made from Assamica or Assamica hybrids. Since the end of the Second World War Yunnan Black teas have steadily increased in popularity.
