    The new 2012 harvest is now available!

    This spring harvest Golden Fleece gets its name to honor the soft, rich textural experience of tasting this beautiful small harvest tea. Golden Fleece is hand picked from wild growth (unmanaged) Yunnan Da Bai tea bushes over forty years old. The biodiversity of the growing region and deeper roots mean a more complex flavor and aroma. Only the most perfect large tender buds are hand-harvested, and carefully hand-finished. The down from the buds infuses into every cup, yielding a uniquely thick mouthfeel. This year's harvest is full and complex with cooling cedar, and spiced nutmeg and cinnamon undertones to bolster the luxurious creamy base.

  • 'In our office tasting on a rainy summer afternoon everyone felt like this was a nap time tea, the taste of being wrapped in a perfectly light down comforter. The sweetness is delicate like butter lettuce, and the florals grow into an old school creme de violet flavor.'
