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 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.
