Yunnan Gold black tea (also known as Dian Hong) is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips, and savory cocoa and black pepper flavors. This artisan tea hails from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Our high-grade Yunnan Gold is milk chocolate creamy and sweet, with pleasant pepper notes. The flavor becomes earthier and more layered as it cools. Soft, rounded cup, silky and perfect. It is also a very forgiving tea and will not taste bitter when over-steeped. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, this "golden" Yunnan would be our clear choice.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

A gold rush is any mass migration caused by the promise or discovery of large quantities of gold. While they’ve happened many times around the world, some of the most famous have been the California Gold Rush of 1848 and the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896 in Canada, which was featured in Jack London’s famous novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang. Yunnan Gold tea, which was first cultivated in the early 20th century, might not conjure the same images of miners rushing to the hills, but for us, it's worth its weight in gold.
