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 Instructions

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 like strong flavorful black teas, loose leaf, straight (without sugar or milk). Assam Breakfast is my favorite with Golden Yunnan a close second. Neither develops undesirable flavor if brewed long.

I got Golden Yunnan because it is the closest thing to Golden Monkey that TROT carries. While I wasn't really sure what to expect, I tried this tea with a completely open mind. With that said, I did sort of have Golden Monkey in the back of my mind the whole time I slurped my first cup of Golden Yunnan. Not surprisingly, there are similarities between the two teas, albeit slight similarities. This is more of a smokey flavor with none of the honey aftertaste of Golden Monkey, but that's not to say this one doesn't have its own nice flavor profile. I'm rather enjoying Golden Yunnan, and I'll most likely continue to drink this tea until TROT gets into the Golden Monkey game!

Fabulous find. Rich, perky, unbitter, forgiving, malty, mysterious, dark, warming, beckoning. This was an accidental find for me and I'm so glad. This now is the number 1 tea in my stash - the one I will not run out of. I drink others, but only so I'll have contrast when I return to this friend. Fabulous, but I recommend 200 degree water - not boily. 1min 45sec. 2nd steep is almost as good as first if kept short

Golden Yunnan is by far my most favorite tea in the world. It's flavor is deep and smooth. I alternate between tea and coffee, and Golden Yunnan is at once a calming and invigorating experience.
