About this tea

Our finest grade of Dianhong black tea, harvested from Mengku heirloom varietal tea trees in China's southwestern Yunnan Province, the birthplace of tea. Masterfully 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.

Traditional Preparation

Do not rinse this tea; infuse the 1st brew for 2 - 3 minutes.

Repeat several times until the flavor and aroma of the tea dissipates. As the brewing session ensues, increase the infusion time to coax out the body and strength of the final infusions. This top-shelf black tea is delightfully smooth and aromatic when brewed straight, or divine with a touch of milk and sugar.
