Golden Black Tea
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Golden Black Tea comes from the Yunnan province of southwest China. It grows at altitudes ranging between 1,800 and 2,100 metres, with harvesting taking place from late-March to mid-April.
A cool climate and fertile soil also contribute significantly to the overall taste and character of this delectable infusion. When brewed, it produces a strong, malty, spicy flavour with earthy undertones.
Perhaps best of all, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company packs every Loose Tea, Tisane and Coffee fresh to order. This guarantees not only quality but also consistency. Golden Black Tea is, of course, no exception, going above and beyond to inspire casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike.
Why not realise its true potential today? You won’t be disappointed.

Health Benefits of Golden Black Tea
Although not yet proven outright, some researchers believe that Tea (no matter the type) can reduce the risk of developing cancer. Indeed, preliminary evidence from a 2015 meta-analysis has already shown promising results.
It noted that drinking a brew a day could reduce cancer risks by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.
It’s essential to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose at this stage. Nevertheless, we support ongoing research.
One benefit, however, is irrefutable. We have long known that chronic stress disrupts sleep and blood sugar levels. This then leads to increased hunger and comfort eating. Eventually, side effects like these escalate, leading to further disrupted sleep, even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars.
In time, this doesn’t just cause unhealthy levels of body fat but also increases the risk of type-2 diabetes. Stopping stress at the source is the potential answer. And what could be more relaxing than a nice, warming cup of Golden Black Tea?
