yunnan gold

yunnan gold

Yunnan Gold is a black tea easily identified by its abundance of soft golden leaves. This artisan tea is also known as Dian Hong hailing from the Yunnan province of China. Our fine Yunnan Gold black tea is creamy and sweet, with pleasant peppery notes. The flavour becomes earthier and more layered as it cools. Soft, rounded cup, silky and perfect. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, this Golden Yunnan would be our clear choice.

fresh from origin

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It's believed to be the birthplace of tea, and home of the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height). This tree is estimated to be 1,700 years old! Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree, by contrast, is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old. These are the large leafed tea varieties - Camellia sinensis assamica - which are also found in India. Yunnan also has the distinction of producing more black tea than any other part of China, although it's a relative newcomer to this variety. Black tea was first produced here in 1939, and is distinguished by its unique peppery, earthy and sometimes cocoa-like flavour.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine
