Yunnan Golden Tip comes from Yunnan, the southwest province of China, where the oldest living tea trees exist. Aging from 800-1300 years old. The tea plant has aged to tree size and the tea pickers have to climb the trees to pick the spring buds from the top of the tree to make this special golden tip tea, also called DianHong. These spring golden tip buds give this black tea a sweet earthy flavor and golden brown brew with a slight hint of smoke. A bourbon or whisky connoisseurs must have, to tipple with.
