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.
