Usually known as Golden Needle, this tea is a treasure yet to be discovered by most English tea drinkers. This a connoisseur tea which our Chinese tea buyer describes as the best black tea in China today. Notice the long rolled up leaves and the golden colour. This is a must try tea from the Yunnan province of China. Golden breakfast is a non-astringent tea and we recommend you drink it without milk and sugar although it is suitable for milk and sugar if you prefer. The cup is a deep golden brown. The taste is full bodied, malty and with a sweet after-taste. Good at breakfast or in the afternoon.
