Quick Overview:

Tasting Notes: Honey, Cedar, Sweet Potato
Born in Yunnan, this rare spring varietal black tea was hand-picked and gently oxidized in wicker baskets to ensure lush golden leaf tones. The soft golden texture offers an aroma of sweet potato with a hint of honey. The malty characteristics of this tea offer a brisk and round mouthfeel. This leaf varietal has a soft downy feel down leaving a bright reddish-golden liquor around the rim after steeping. We are honored to offer this micro-lot spring harvest tea while its in stock. Purchase amount is limited to one 1oz bag per customer. Approximately 15 cups on average.
