Cultivar: Xiang Gui Yun Hao "Fragrant Tippy Yunnan"
Harvest Date: April-May 2016
Yunnan Xiang Gui celebrates the sweetness that the best traditional style Dianhong ("Yunnan Red") teas have to offer. It is made from a cultivar that is cherished for its downy tips that are lush with a high concentration of tricomes–the golden fleece that covers the tea buds. These golden buds not only create a beautiful dry leaf to appreciate, but also lend a rich mouthfeel and natural sugary sweetness into the cup. Yunnan Xiang Gui is best enjoyed straight up, without milk or sugar.
Tippy black tea with notes of caramelized pear, Japanese confectionery sugar, and the delicate aroma of sweet carnation flowers.
