Yunnan Gold

  • 1900

Tasting Notes: cocoa, black pepper, honey

Description: This extraordinary black tea is from the birthplace of tea itself, Yunnan province China, which produces some of the world’s most premium teas. “Yun,” meaning cloud, references the cloud covered mountains of Yunnan province which is known for rich and complex teas.  The taste of this tea is deliciously malty and smooth with lingering notes of cocoa, honey and black pepper.

Premium Yunnan Golden is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips and its savory taste profile.  Yunnan Gold is produced from a tea bud during the last 10 days of the plant's growth.  After harvesting, the buds are painstakingly and meticulously sorted to keep only the most perfect leaves.  This results in an exceptionally high-grade tea.  Due the handcrafted artisan method of withering and oxidizing these premium tea leaves, the beautiful buds turn gold rather than black.  The result of these labor-intensive processes is a tea that is unmistakably smooth and complex.
