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). This Royal Golden Yunnan is a consistent favourite. An excellent, accessible afternoon tea.
Tasting Notes: A toasty palate with notes of citrus and dark cocoa. Finishes with a whisper of gentle mineral astringency at the back of the tongue and a light hint of caramel. Mild, smooth, and full flavoured with a gentle cinnamon musk throughout.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
