Description

Golden hue liquor, exhibits full-bodied complex fruity aroma, cinnamon, and pepper.

This Golden Black tea may be distinguished from Golden Needle and Golden Tips by having a close look at infused leaves. The open two leaves and a bud distinguish this tea from other golden teas and they also allow more surface area for full oxidation.

Picking

This tea is generally picked from fields that are 1500 meters above the sea level in Nepal. Cultivars or bushes that have undergone deep style of pruning after five consecutive years of picking only qualify for this kind of tea. The two internodes in between the bud and the two leaves contribute to the higher complexity of enzymes and flavonoids.


Processing

The leaves are withered for several hours with conditioned air, slowly blown from underneath until the leaves turn flaccid but retain enough moisture to transfer complexes from the core of the cells to the outer layers of the leaves. The leaves are rolled to an extent where the leaves turn wiry and the juices pour out profusely. The leaves are oxidized for a long period of time and baked at constant temperatures. While baking, these teas are turned several times and finally fired at high temperatures.
