Organic Golden Yunnan tea: black tea from south-west China

Having golden tips this is a creamy, rich Organic Golden Yunnan tea from the northern highlands of Yunnan Province in south-west China. It makes a very attractive, creamy, aromatic and well-balanced morning tea that may be taken with milk. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for four minutes. Delicious.

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Organic Golden Yunnan tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

Delivery options

For delivery our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option such as first class post or courier. Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.

Storing your tea

Store your tea with care by ensuring it is stored air-tight, away from heat, light, moisture and strong aromas. Our standard best-before period is one year from packing and all teas are packed to order.

    Agree with previous reviews – this is a smooth and refreshing tea which is not too heavy and has no harsh tannins. I also drink with a splash of milk, mainly as an afternoon tea.
    Service and delivery is always prompt and teas are well packed.

  2. fernbaum (verified owner)

    Unusually both robust enough for the morning and refreshing enough for the afternoon .. a tea to look forward to any time of the day

  3. CHRIS (verified owner)

    Quite a soft body, but with a distinct creamy aftertaste. Would recommend.

  4. bob1 (verified owner)

    I have reviewed this before and it remains a favourite: I prefer a strong brew with a little milk. Needs a longish brew but copes with multiple top ups

  5. ruthfrankiefrancis (verified owner)

    Love this tea. It’s smooth with a strong flavour, classic of the Yunnan teas. Great for breakfast or for an afternoon cuppa.

  6. Andrea (verified owner)

    Exceptional flavour, so much so I think/fantasise about it between brews! It is strong but soft. No harsh tannin. Goes well with milk (I use a little almond) and without it. I wouldn’t say it is complex but it is both deep and subtle which appears to contradict that.

    This is an absolutely delicious black tea which takes milk well but is very good without. A second infusion is excellent and it sits in the pot well.
    I engaged the assistance of a friend to do a blind tasting comparing the use of tap water (permanent hardness in east Essex) and filtered water: I used exactly equal quantities of tea and water in two similar bone china teapots: he did not know which teapot had which water, and I did not know which teapot he poured each cup from. We made a blind choice and we both decided the tap water produced the best, smoother and creamier flavour, but noted that the tap water gave a slightly duller, greenish colour to the tea.
    Look out for a nearly new filter jug on eBay!
