High grade Yunnan spring tea buds briefly fermented and carefully controlled to create a radiantly golden looking black tea! Leaves are shiny and still contain the downy hairs of spring. The aroma is sweet, carmel-like...Flavor is mild, smooth, and delicate...

I absolutely adore this tea. Wonderful amber color. Smooth Yunnan flavor with a sweet caramel taste being most prominent and a light spicy, peppery tone as a highlight. Does well with a short one minute steep for the first infusion, 2 minutes for the second, and 5 for the third.

It is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. I would rather have one great cup of tea, rather than a dozen mediocre ones!
