Yunnan Gold

Yunnan Gold (Golden Yunnan, Dian Hong) is one of world's best black teas. It is produced in Chinese Yunan ("south of the clouds") region located in the far southwestern corner of the country.
Yunnan Gold tea leaves are small, tighty rolled and of golden-brown colour.
And the taste...Well, it is rich with a hint of sweet malty flavour.
How to brew it? It is recommended to use purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use 1-2 teaspoons of tea leaves per every 150 ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at about 100° C for the first and second brewing. In further brewing gradually increase steeping time and water temperature. For those who prefer milk with tea...just add 10 to 15 ml of dairy milk and stir...
