Yunnan Golden Curls or Golden Snail is a beautiful, rare tea composed exclusively of silky soft, golden leaf-buds with an unusual curled shape of Pi Luo Chun. Deeply layered with cocoa and spice notes, black pepper and raisins. Creamy and savoury from the first whiff. The flavour and texture of the cup itself is just as complex, with warm toffee, sweet potatoes, malty sweetness and a velvety mouthfeel. These curls display a tremendous depth of flavour, a clean, mineral finish and lingering fragrance.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 5 minutes.

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.
