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.
