This black tea is picked only from the leaf buds in the early spring. It is fully oxidized and mellows to a lovely golden color. This is an exceptionally high grade of black tea from the Yunnan growing region. It brews a rich smooth flavor with honey notes and slight tobacco flavor. A great cup of tea; truly divine!
- Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Heat the water to the boil
- Use a teaspoon (3g) for a 6oz serving. Please note, for denser teas this is about 1 teaspoon; for larger-leaf teas this could be up to 2 tablespoons.
- Experiment with steeping times, amount of tea and water temperature to personalize your tea experience. Rely on taste, not color. Lengthen subsequent steeping times for additional infusions.
