golden curls

A beautiful black tea from the Yunnan province of China, composed exclusively of curled silky-soft golden leaves. A deeply layered cup with notes of cocoa, spice, black pepper and raisins. The texture is equally complex, with a mouthfeel akin to liquid velvet and soft astringency. The aroma of the Yunnan Golden Curls is creamy and savory, with hints of warm toffee and sweet potatoes. Teas of this caliber are increasingly rare, so take time to appreciate this exquisite tea and the Yunnan artisans who continue to craft it.

fresh from origin

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It's believed to be the birthplace of tea, and home of the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height). This tree is estimated to be 1,700 years old! Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree, by contrast, is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old. These are the large leafed tea varieties - Camellia sinensis assamica - which is also found in India. Yunnan also has the distinction of producing more black tea than any other part of China, although it's a relative newcomer to this variety. Black tea was first produced here in 1939, and is distinguished by its unique peppery, earthy and sometimes cocoa-like flavor.
