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 complexity can be found in this steep, both in the aroma and flavour. An excellent, everyday black tea.
Tasting Notes: Notes of golden sweet grasses mark both the aroma and flavour of the steep. The golden tips of the tea buds add a rich and slightly sweet finish, typical of teas from Yunnan. A smooth, well-rounded palate start to finish.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
