This certified organic black tea is harvested from Yunnan's ancient tea trees. Golden Yunnan has expertly oxidized, evenly graded leaves and big, golden buds.

Tasting Notes: Malty and rich with a mellow, jammy sweetness and subtle accents of plum and raisin

Ingredients: Organic black tea.

Additional Info: Classic black teas offer a timeless taste of tea's rich history and express a distinct sense of place, determined not only by geography and climate, but also by culture and tradition.

This tea comes to us from the Wa Shan Ecological Tea Garden in Yunnan, China. Explore the tea and landscapes of Wa Shan in Rishi's Travelogue.
Water Temperature: 212°F (boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4 minutes (1st infusion), 5 minutes (2nd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I've been drinking this tea for near 20 years, been buying it directly since I moved to a city with no Whole Foods. I have tried many black teas, but nothing touches this one.

My wife and I have been drinking this black tea for years, probably 10 years now, ordered by the pound, every morning. Note that we prefer to allow it to brew for 20 min! more subtle flavor this way.

I purchased a sample of this and am now ordering the larger amount. It is my favorite of the many samples I tried. Also, and possibly coincidentally, I've had a calm, positive feeling "come over me" half an hour to an hour after drinking it. (Around six times now, as I've reused the leaves.) Maybe the first few times were coincidences leading to the expectation, but it's nice anyway.

I discovered this tea loose leaf at Whole Foods, but now buy it directly from Rishi. I have it almost every morning (unless I'm drinking Bulletproof coffee.) It's lovely, full bodied and rich. I use a full tablespoon for about 16oz of water and then a second infusion. I add milk as it's strong, but I don't think it's bitter, ever. Thank you for a great tea.
