Yunnan Golden Needles
The mountainous areas of Yunnan, where tea gardens enjoy ideal growing conditions, are home to China’s famed black Yunnan teas. Yunnan Golden Needles, also known as ‘Dian Hong’, consists of only golden tips and is a truly rare tea. The buds are hand-rolled and offer an exceptional cup of golden amber. ‘Dian Hong’ is the black tea equivalent to the famous white Silver needle ‘Bai Hao’.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
