China's southwestern province of Yunnan, situated "south of the clouds," is one of the said regions of origin of the tea tree. Home to the large-leafed camellia sinensis assamica, it is these buds and tender leaves that are processed entirely by hand in early spring to produce an exceptional black tea variety – famous for its natural honey-sweetness and its gilded beauty. Picked at altitudes of up to 2100 m (6900 ft.), the golden tips not only boast an extra-high content of amino acids and invigorating caffeine, but also delight connoisseurs and gourmets alike with rich, malty waves of dark chocolate and caramel.

Thoroughly enjoyable

This tea is a real joy on the palate; in addition to the stronger malt and burnt caramel top notes, there is also sweet almost bitter orange under note that comes out particularly when brewed cold as ice tea. Mouth feel is light and pleasant on the tongue.

Hell of a Black Tea

Exceptionally good tea. Didn't know that China produces such black teas.

Rich and malty

It’s a great tea for those who like less citrusy versions of black tea. Very rich and malty, with a light caramel aftertaste. Very smooth and pleasant to drink.
