Gold Needle Assamica

This is a tea I always come back to.  Grown and processed in a village co-op in Simao, Yunnan, this tea has a depth and uniqueness that stirs my creativity.  This is a pure Assamica varietal that goes through a longer wither to bring out the caramel-like aroma. Each tip is one or two leaves and a bud, covered with fine downy hairs.  The flavor is thick and slightly smoky with notes of tobacco, cedar and cacao and a bright, slightly tannic finish.  It is a tea that can be steeped in short, 20 second bursts but also stays smooth with a longer brewing time.
