GOLDEN NEEDLE YUNNAN 2016 BLACK TEA
Infusion Time: 4 mins
Caffeine Level: High
High-altitude-grown Golden Needle Yunnan is considered to be one of the finest teas in the world. Ours is completely composed of big, downy, almost fluffy leaves in strawberry blond, copper and French grey. The delightful dry leaf aroma is woody and lightly floral, with a hint of chocolate. The brew's deep caramel color hints at its bold aromas of drying tobacco, wildflower honey and blond woods. Its honey-sweet flavor is full-bodied, round and brimming with smooth notes of apple blossoms, apricots, buttery, baked yams and chocolate. The long-lasting aftertaste has exquisite notes of tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. Like any true "self drinker," this lusciously rich, fantastically nuanced tea is at its pinnacle when drunk without milk or sugar. It is a personal favorite of American Tea Room's founder, and one of our store's best-selling teas.
