Yunnan Gold Bud | Black Tea
Captures the classics of Yunnan black tea character - silky in texture, brown sugar in aroma, and sweetened grains/tobacco in the cup. A transcendent tea greater than the sum of its parts…and pretty, too.
Produced on September 1, 2021 in Feng Qing county, Lincang city, Yunnan. Made from single buds growing at 6,000 feet from a local Feng Qing cultivar. The Chinese name for this tea is “Honey Scented Gold Buds” for its sweet aroma.
