Yunnan Gold (China)This high grade tea from Yunnan is full of gold-tipped leaves. It is lush and thirst quenching with a full bodied richness and sweet liquor. A beautifully balanced cup. One of our favourites.
Ingredients: Black tea from China
27/06/18 - Today we sold our last bag from the 2017 harvest. We are now waiting on our new 2018 harvest samples to arrive which we expect to receive in around 2 weeks with stock to follow by end of August. We purchase this tea once a year immediately at harvest. If you want us to let you know when it is available please just send us an email from our contacts page on the top line menu.
We were going to stop offering this high quality tea because of the price increases caused by difficult growing conditions last season. We were not sure if our customers would purchase at this price level. We canvassed the majority of our customers who had purchased this tea before and they said we have to keep it - it really is that special. This means we get a limited shipment each year immediately after the harvest and once that has sold that is it.
If your initial reaction is that it is too expensive for your everyday tea think of it in terms of how much you would pay for a special occasion wine (or beverage of choice). With this purchase of tea you get a whole bunch more servings and no headache. Buy for yourself or as a beautiful gift for a serious black tea lover. Everything about this tea is very handsome.
