The best teas from Yunnan (known as the birthplace of tea) are wiry and tightly twisted with distinct golden tips. This exquisite variety brews up rich amber-red in color, has a lightly sweet, floral flavor and aroma, and brings welcome notes of smoke, spice and leather.
Tasting Notes:Sweet potato peel, cacao nib, rose
For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep 2 tsp (3 g) for five minutes. It will seem like the blink of an eye.
