A recently invented tea, Golden Tips is comprised purely of buds—very large, furry buds from large-leaf assamica old tea trees, which grow tall with thick trunks.

When you open the packet, you may see some golden fluff inside. This is the little hairs that grow on the buds to protect them until the leaf opens up, and is perfectly fine to drink!

When we first tried this tea, we were instantly taken with its distinctive sweet potato flavour! It also has a fanta-orange colour liquor and very low astringency for a black tea.

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
4g | per 100ml | 95°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 4 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
2g | per 100ml | 90°C | 3 mins
+1 min per steep for at least 2 steeps

Cold brew
10g | 1L | Room temp/ refrigerated | 6 hours

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
