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. Take time to appreciate this exquisite tea and the Yunnan artisans who continue to craft it. Harvest: Spring 2019.

The “Eighteen Oddities in Yunnan” are a list of eighteen unique qualities used to market the province to potential tourists. Some of our favorites include “Rain here but sunshine there” (in reference to the variable weather), “Girls wear flowers in all four seasons,” and “Grannies climb mountains faster than monkeys,” though how they tested that last one, we’re not sure. The list is known to fluctuate however, including sometimes candidates like “Tea leaves are sold in piles.” We’re assuming you’re not allowed to jump in them like leaf piles in fall. Either way, we’re in.
