Yunnan Gold Tip Black Tea is an exceptional quality Tea with many Gold Tip leaves among the black leaves, and an abundance of rich, peppery flavor.
Yunnan is an ancient province in south-western China, bordering on Vietnam. This misty, mountainous province has grown tea for 2,000 years. The "Yun" in Yunnan means "cloud" and most Yunnan teas are grown at elevations of three to seven thousand feet.
Yunnan is also the home of the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height). This tree is estimated to be 1,800 years old! Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree, by contrast, is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old!
