Golden Needle Ripe Pu-erh Tea of Yong De * 2016
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Golden Needle grade is the finest grade of ripe pu-erh. A small leaf grade but slightly larger than gong ting, it is composed primarily of tippy gold buds. The taste is something between gongting grade and golden pu-erh. Thick, floaty and sweet with just a slight twinge of bitter to bring contrast and balance to the brew.
