This is a limited-production black tea with a bittersweet finish. Golden buds have a captivating, chocolate orange aroma, and an ever-so-slight smoky undertone. The golden buds are carefully hand-selected from the most tender downy tips to make up this decadent brew. An elegant expression of texture and aftertaste. A sophisticated tea for breakfast or any other time of day.
