Golden Bud Dianhong
Type: Black Tea
Where: Longquan, Yunnan Province, China
Liquor: Deep amber, caramel
Flavour profile: Light & refreshing black tea with sweet malt, honey & osmanthus notes
Mouthfeel: Slightly dry
Golden downy leaves dance their way to honeyed malty heaven, making you feel like a King or Queen!
It is the kind of tea that you drink and just grin. We laugh and look at each other in a way that says: “I can’t believe how good this tea is!”.
The first striking thing about this ludicrously good organic dianhong black tea from one of Yunnan Province’s leading small tea producers is the amount & softness of the down on the bright golden long, curled, dry leaves.
The second striking thing is the aroma from the dry leaves – light fruit and malty, Osmanthus notes abound. These aromas follow through pleasantly in the brew.
The beautifully pure deep amber liquor is wonderfully light with refreshing sweet malt, honey, Osmanthus & gentle copper, leading to a smooth lasting honey copper finish.
After brewing, the leaves maintain a golden hue as the two leaves open gently to reveal the silver gold bud sheltered inside.
We hope you love this limited quantity tea as much as we do.
Out of stock
Add 2 heaped teaspoons per cup (that’s around 3-4 grams) and pour on 100°C water straight off the boil.
Infuse the tea for 2 - 3 minutes and enjoy.
Re-infuse 2 -3 times.
Don’t forget, you can adjust any of the measurements to suit your style!
If you use a piao yi teapot or gaiwan, then infuse for much shorter time and enjoy multiple infusions with a different flavour profile each time!
