Inventory on the way
Like all our teas, we aim to bring you the finest. Yunnan Golden is hand-picked from the beautiful mountain region of SW China. The conditions are very misty, which is ideal for bud and leaf growth. And Yunnan province has been producing tea for some 1,700 years... that's equivalent to half the amount of time Bruce Forsyth has been in show business.
The leaves of this tea bush are uniformly shaped and quite broad. They are combined with the golden buds to give a stunning reddish-black liquor that has a molasses-like sweetness and malty finish.
