Yunnan Gold

Regular price $6.50

Style: Black

Origin: Yunnan Province, China

Description: Yunnan province has the oldest tea cultivation history in the world. Its mountainous elevation and mild temperatures offer ideal growing conditions for the Camellia sinensis var. sinensis plants. This terroir, with its unique soil profile, adds to the popular, rich, and mildly toasty flavour of Yunnan’s local dian hong (red teas). Yunnan Gold offers a wonderfully rich and satisfying cup. Toasty notes and a sweet lingering complexity can be found in this steep, both in aroma and flavour.

With little to no astringency this tea is easy to steep thus making it an excellent, everyday black tea.

Tasting Notes: Notes of sweet golden grass mark both aroma and flavour of this tea. The golden tips of the tea buds intermingled with more mature leaves add a rich and slightly sweet finish, typical of teas from Yunnan. A smooth and well-rounded cup from start to finish.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.


China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
