Description

Yunnan Golden Tips is an exceptional quality infusion known for its deep, caramel-like flavour. It comes from the southern Chinese province of the same name, which borders Vietnam, Laos, Burma (Myanmar) and the Indian state of Assam.

Most notably, it consists of twisted black leaves with plenty of golden tips. We pack it fresh to order, ensuring both quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.  

What’s more, when enjoyed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, Yunnan Golden Tips offers Black Tea benefits. This is according to scientific research, which indicates it can promote weight loss, improve heart health and reduce diabetes risks.

Furthermore, there are suggestions it can aid digestion, enhance brain function and support the immune system. 

Quick Facts About Yunnan Tea 

  • Yunnan might be the original home of Tea?

  • Before the 1930s, this province made only Green Tea?

  • Yunnan Black Tea came into existence due to the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945)?

  • Did you know Yunnan Tea is one of the most popular types of China Black Tea today? 

Yunnan Tea in Detail 

During the 1930s, in the wake of the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945), many southeastern Tea-growing provinces became war zones. As a result, officials began scouting Yunnan as a potential alternative for making China Black Tea.

Feng Shaoqiu and his colleague Zheng Hechun, both of the China Tea Corporation, were the first to investigate the province’s economic potential.

Their endeavours ultimately resulted in the establishment of the Yunnan Tea Trading Corporation, followed by the Shunning Experimental Tea Factory. Between 1939 and 1941, some 110 tonnes of Yunnan Tea was created, which, of course, went on to become a tremendous success!

  1. Looks fantastic, realllly long and wiry leaf, and indeed flecked with gorgeous ochre tips. Beautifully fragrant. THIS is the sort of grade of brew I like, because I sit a spoonful in a non-fussy trad strainer IN the cup itself for 5 mins. It unfurls to fill the strainer, and because it’s so massive there’s never any leaves sitting in the bottom of the cup.
