Commercial Description

From Yunnan, China. Growing in tea farms located on high mountains, only fat fine buds of spring first crop are plucked to produce this Golden Silk tea. Purely golden in color, the golden buds brew bright amber color liquor. Exceptionally smooth and sweet honey flavor with elegant flowery aroma. One of our most popular teas amongst tea connoisseurs.

This is a really smooth delicious Yunnan. It is woodsy, with honey and astringent notes mixed in. The aroma is very Yunnan, with a bit of floral around the edges. I brewed about 1.5 teas. for 3.5 minutes. It is so dark as to be almost black. I did do a second infusion of 1/2 the water for about 5 min. and that was equally as good. A lovely tea and not very expensive, as good teas go.
