Background Knowledge

China's southwestern province of Yunnan, situated "south of the clouds," is one of the said regions of origin of the tea tree. Home to the large-leafed camellia sinensis assamica, it is these buds and tender leaves that are processed entirely by hand in early spring to produce an exceptional black tea variety – famous for its natural honey-sweetness and its gilded beauty. Picked at altitudes of up to 2100 m (6900 ft.), the golden tips not only boast an extra-high content of amino acids and invigorating caffeine, but also delight connoisseurs and gourmets alike with rich, malty waves of dark chocolate and caramel.
