Yunnan Gold Tips - Spring 2016

$8.50

This tea comes from southern Yunnan and is picked once a year in the early spring. The harvest utilizes fresh buds to create a rich, flavorful, and very sweet tea. The dry leaf aroma is malt, milk chocolate, wildflowers, and sun-dried apples, and the wet leaf hints at a deeper cocoa as well as oak and maple wood. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and clean, opening with dark oak honeydew, milk chocolate, and tart apple. The middle is full of cream and malt and the finish brings forth slight wildflower notes. Later infusions hint at stonefruit and a mouth-coating nectar-like quality is always present.

Harvest: Spring 2016
