Our Yunnan Gold is an exceptional quality tea with beautiful gold-colored leaves and an abundance of rich peppery flavor. Allowed to take only one tea to a desert island, 'Yunnan Gold' would be our clear choice. Full-leaf tea in portable, individually wrapped bags - superior taste and maximum convenience.

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It had been a tea-producing region for close to two thousand years. Here grows China's oldest wild tea tree - about seventeen hundred years old. Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree is a relative youngster - a mere eight hundred years old. 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 taste.
