    Full bud Yunnan black teas are an elegant expression of texture and aftertaste. Xingyang's pre-Qingming picking has been selected and finished to represent a perfectly classic ideal of the Golden Buds flavor and texture profile. The downy buds make for a thick and rich brew. While Xingyang would usually blend buds like this into fine shu pu'er commemorative pressings, it is a pleasure to try such a pure expression of what their fields have to offer.


  • 'While gorgeous buds like these are often used by Xingyang to create smooth, sweet, and creamy shu pu’er teas (like their 2008 Goden Buds Shu Pu’er), the workshop has been experimenting for the last few seasons with fully oxidizing tea buds to create traditional Yunnan black tea'
