If Keemuns are the aristocrats of Chinese black teas, Yunnan black teas could be considered the frugal yet happy cousins from another region. Earthy to the point of being almost vigorously assertive, Yunnan teas have a maple sweetness that wins you over with charm. Typical of many Yunnan teas, Yunnan Golden Tips features a mixture of dull gold buds and black leaves (also known as Dianhong).


Black tea.
