One of the finest black teas we have had the honor of tasting, golden needles are the fully oxidized young buds of Chinese tea plants from the Yunnan province. With flavor that reminds some of prunes and maple syrup, its quality surpasses most "golden needle" teas.


Chinese Yunnan Tippy Black Tea*

*Organically Grown.


  1. Scoop a level tablespoon of tea leaves into your infuser.
  2. Heat water to 190 (before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
  5. Remove infuser and enjoy tea.


Simply add to your infuser one level tablespoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190 water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy.


Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy. The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
