The vibrant orange liquor has a malty nutty flavor with a honey sweetness that is smooth and mellow. The aroma reminds me of warmed sugar and caramel. This tea is a delicious daily brew for any time.

Golden Needles is grown at an altitude of around 1600 m in an organic garden located in  South Yunnan. It is certified by EU and NOP standards. Dian Hong is basically a term for high-quality black teas produced in Yunnan. Dian is a shortened term for Yunnan and Hong meaning red. What we in the west consider black tea, is called hong cha or red tea in China.  Organic Yunnan Golden Needles is a variety of dian hong that is made from the golden tips of the plant and is covered in golden hair. The result is a tea that has a vibrant color and mellow sweet flavor with almost no astringency.
