Golden Needle Black Tea - Premium


Product Description

Our Golden Needle won in the hot cup category at the 2011 North American Tea Championship.  Often called the Silver Needle of black tea, this amazing tea is made only of young buds picked in early spring from the Yunnan Da Ye Pu’er trees. The tea is prized for its sweet honey like flavour. It is also one of the Emperor’s choice teas. Overall this tea is wonderfully sweet and delicious, a must try for any lover of black tea.    Golden Needle is medium bodied with a wonderfully honey-like sweetness. The aroma alone is enough to make your mouth water. The aftertaste is sweet and long lasting.

Region:Lincang, Yunnan Province, China.
