Our full flavored Yunnan Gold is made from leaves of "ancient tea trees" of Jingmai Manjing mountains in southern Yunnan. These trees are reputed to be hundreds of years old. Yunnan Gold replaces our Yunnan Gold Supreme for now.
The Gold variety is sweet with notes of raw honey, wood, pepper and malt. The liquor is sparkly brassy with a rich buttery mouth-feel with accents of ripe pear and raisins. This is a wonderful tea for those looking for a full-bodied black tea.
The tea may be resteeped several times.
