Yunnan Golden Needle

Yunnan Golden Needle


This black tea is made in Yunnan Province, in southern China, and consists entirely of silky buds. When oxidized, these buds turn a luminiscent golden color.

Once infused, an initial aroma of chocolate leads to rich fragrances of quince, dried apricot and spice; the flavor is smooth and deep, with a slight astringency and notes of sweet hay and tobacco leaf. The flavor holds up well through multiple steeps.
