Yunnan Gold Rings
The phenomenal popularity of puerh tea has considerably slowed the production of black tea in Yunnan province, as farmers and factories are all rushing to produce puerhs. However, black tea is beginning to make a comeback. We are very pleased to offer this true Yunnan tea for your consideration. It consists of downy, golden tips that have been hand-fashioned into uniformly sized rings. The liquor is a deep ruby red and has a chocolate-like note that is hard to find in modern teas.
Yunnan, China: With its abundant rainfall, mild climate and fertile land, Yunnan Province has ideal conditions for tea cultivation and is known as the historical birthplace of medicinal teas.
This versatile black tea can be brewed English-style: use 3 grams of tea per 8-10 oz. of near-boiling water and steep for a full 5 minutes. Milk and sugar can be added as well. A shorter steeping time is recommended if drinking plain. Gaiwan and gongfu style brewing are also suitable. Adjust the quantity of leaves, steeping time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
