YUNNAN BLACK GOLD BLACK TEA

Yunnan Black Gold Black Tea
As low as £17.00
This tea's appearance, long golden buds in a blend shot through with dark, wiry leaves is beautiful but it is in the cup that this tea really shines. It is made by a tea master with the focus being on maximising the complexity of flavour. As well as all the usual spicy, peppery, subtle earthy notes and a sweetness in the finish, this batch has a very clear note of caramel that we love, with a warm honey flavour too. As you can tell, one of our favourite teas of the year.

This handmade tea has a very high leaf bud content balanced with darker leaves. The beautiful, golden down-covered leaves are twisted into a most elegant shape. Made by a tea master in Yunnan with the focus being on maximising the complexity of flavour, it is in the cup that this tea really shines. As well as all the usual spicy, peppery, subtle earthy notes and sweetness in the finish, this batch has a very clear note of caramel with a warm honey flavour too. We like this tea really strong, brewed for 6-7 minutes and with a splash of full cream milk. It never gets bitter, however long it is brewed for. You can also make it Gong Fu style and brew it several times but just for twenty seconds at a time. As you can tell, it is one of our favourite teas. Cultivated on high, misty plateaus, in the red soil of the Lancang River.
