Located in southwestern China, Yunnan is the home of this exceptional black tea. This tea is plucked only between the end of March and mid-April, depending on the weather, and produced according to a special method. This tea is cultivated at altitudes ranging between 1,800 and 2,100 m, in an area with a cool climate and natural woodland. The big, finely worked, tobacco-like leaf with many golden tips yields a copper-coloured cup and a strong, spicy, malty flavour combined with the typically soft, earthy Yunnan character.
