Yunnan Golden Needle is a superior grade of Yunnan Gold, comprised solely of gold tips covered in much finer golden hairs. The tea has a similar taste but Yunnan Golden Needle is slightly more gentle and sweet due to the loss of the richer brown buds. Tucked away between Burma and Vietnam, Yunnan province is a difficult place to farm, its topography ranging from Himalayan canyons to limestone spires, but over the centuries locals have wrapped countless paddy fields and plantations around the contours, and it is here that the gourmet Dianhong teas are grown. The gold-tipped leaves yield a golden honey aroma with added malty and mildly nutty depths, perfect for a special occasion but also humble enough for an indulgent daily routine.
