About Yunnan Golden Tips Tea (Da Jin Ya)
This Premium Dian Hong Black Tea tastes richer and more delicate than standard Dian Hong Black Tea. It tastes very mellow combined with a hit of honey with sweet floral flavor. It has creamy, smooth and buttery mouthfeel.
It is produced in Linyi, Baoshan, Fengqing, Xishuangbanna, Dehong and other areas in the south and southwest of Yunnan province. This subtropical region is one of rolling hills with an average elevation of over 1,000 meters. The average annual temperature is around 18-22°C, with a very large temperature difference between day and night. The annual precipitation is 1,200-1,700mm. In sunny periods there is often fog in the morning and during the night.
There is dense forest and the soil is fertile, with fallen leaves and grass decaying to form a deep humus layer. These conditions result in tea trees with strong buds and fat leaves covered with rich white fuzz. Even the fifth or sixth leaves on the branch are very delicate and juicy and contain rich polyphenolic compounds and alkaloids.
Our Premium Dian Hong was produced in the spring of 2019.
