Rich in flavor and highly aromatic, this classic black tea from the Yunnan province of China has an exceptionally round flavor accented by soft honey notes.  Absent of any bitterness, our prized Yunnan Gold is delicious with or without milk. “Tippy” black teas like Yunnan Gold are sweeter because the tips (new growth) used to create it contain more glucose at the time of harvest.

Yunnan Gold is a single estate (single plantation, single harvest) black tea.  All tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant, but black tea differs in that the leaf is fully oxidized. Yunnan Gold is  made up of golden, downy buds representing the tea plant’s newest growth.  The buds are picked early in the leaf’s development at a time when they do not contain the same chemical composition as the plant’s larger, older leaves.   The buds do not darken during the oxidation process and instead turn a beautiful golden brown.

We recommend steeping Yunnan Gold for 3 minutes at 195°.  Nevertheless, it is less prone to bitterness than other black teas and can be more forgiving when over-steeped. Try Yunnan Gold with rich meats, bread pudding with caramel sauce or cranberries.
