Golden Yunnan Royal Grade

Black Tea

Few teas produced in the world make the Royal grade and we are proud to offer this tea. It is made from high-quality buds that are painstakingly hand-picked and sorted. These tender, young leaves are covered and sun withered before oxidizing in temperature controlled rooms. With a careful balance of heat and moisture, the sauna-like environment causes the tea leaves to turn gold rather than black. Every few hours, the leaves must be turned over, which is done by hand..for forty days! This labor intensive process yields an exquisite masterpiece. Golden Yunnan Royal Grade tea has deep, malty flavors with top notes of citrus and lychee. Each complex cup invigorates the senses and and elevates the day to royal status.

This tea is my absolute favorite! I start every morning with a cup of this black tea. If you've tried the rest now try the Best!

so good, but worth the price?

This tea is delicious. It's the only one I've seen with the "high" caffeine level, which I didn't feel when I drank it in case you're worried about caffeine. While this tea is very very good, I've found that it's flavor is similar enough to other black teas that I'm not planning to buy more. If money were no object then I would definitely keep this tea on hand.

Nice smooth tea

I really enjoy this tea. Smooth, pleasant, and (for me) a great transitional tea for me as I move away from being a coffee drinker.

Delicious yellow tea

Forget faint hearted flavor of some white teas, forget the grassiness of some green teas... Imperial Grade Yunnan Yellow offers delightful flavor to be savored hot or over ice. A truly lovely tea.
