Golden Sprouting Buds
Golden leaf, exquisite flavor. Mild tannins, malty, and sweet, with a finish reminiscent of dried plums and raisins.
The “leaves” are actually single buds, which accounts for the golden coppery look of the tea. The cup is light – medium in body, which is expected from an all-bud tea. An exceptional tea from the Yunnan region.
Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a rolling boil; steep for 3 minutes. Good hot or iced.
