Elevate The Senses Tea - From the cloud-veiled mountains of Yunnan, the birthplace of tea, this rare, high-grown, golden tippy Yunnan is one of the most prized China black teas in the world. Exquisitely smooth and malty with pleasing floral overtones and a tinge of citrus, enjoy this brew with a touch of sugar and a splash of milk. Delicious hot or over ice.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

I bought the small tasting tin for this one--given the price, I didn't want to take a risk of not liking it--at the same time as 3 other teas. Without my having said anything about it, my husband and son commented on how much they liked the Golden Yunnan. It's a great tea, with a deep, smooth, rounded flavor; truly worth brewing in whole leaf and savoring.

A smooth taste without an overwhelming astringency. Subtle notes of earth and wind in this tea bring one to a level of relaxation that is much in demand at the end of a long day. The full leaf allows for a mellow piquancy that has no equivalent. I will continue to acquire this purity on a perpetual basis.

Pleasurably earthy with sweet undertones. When i feel drained this tea brings warmth and healing. I keep coming back the golden yunnan my brother and I drink almost half a pound of this tea a month.

Golden Yunnan is my favorite tea! I haven't met too many teas that I don't like, but this is my all around, "go to" tea when I really want a great tasting tea. I highly recommend Golden Yunnan; it has a smooth, golden flavor and it tastes great by itself or with food and pastries.

Now I have another favorite. I am a dedicated Oolong tea drinker, but I tried Golden Yunnan for the 1st time, intrigued by the description of "Elevate the Senses", from the cloud-veiled mountains of China. It is everything it is reputed to be. From the 1st sip to the end of the cup and a 2nd infusion, I just love it. I had to write this commentary, so more citizens are inspired to try it ASAP.
