What is Golden Tips Tea?

Our Golden tips tea is a  rare kind of  tea that originates in Nepal . Golden tips tea is produced in the Eastern Himalayas of Nepal. Golden Tips Tea is made from the same tea plants, i.e. Camellia sinensis, which are used to make Black, Green, Oolong and White Teas.

Golden Tips Tea is simply the highest grade Black Tea but is made up of the young top bud of the tea plant. These early-harvested buds are what give them their distinctive flavor. Golden tips tea has more vitamins and minerals and is more flavorful than any ordinary Black Tea.

 

What Makes this Black tea different?

Tips in” Golden Tips” are simply unopened young leaves, which are the most tender part of the tea plant. The tea plants push out nutrients in the first tea tips during the spring, right after a long dormancy during the winter, where the plant does not produce any leaf.


Due to a long winter dormancy which causes the plant to be stressed, where the plant is only concerned with surviving, it keeps on absorbing essential nutrients and minerals from the soil in excess, which is expressed fully when the tea plant starts budding in the early spring as the stress is released into a nutrient and flavor-packed young buds.

When the first set of buds appear on a tea plant in early springs, farmers rush in and quickly pick these buds before they unfurl into baby leaves and rush it to the factory to process it into the highest Grade Black tea called Golden Tips Black Tea.
