A richly russet brew with a subtle smokiness...

Grown in China’s southern Yunnan Province, our Tippy Golden Yunnan is a wonderfully warming tea with a strong honey-sweetness and smooth malty taste, slightly lighter than an Assam. Harvested by hand, the large, bright leaves have an attractive golden tip, producing a richly russet brew with a subtle smokiness and a hint of spice.

We tend to brew this tea lightly to fully appreciate its layered sweetness, but it also holds its own against a splash of milk.  

  • Origin

    China, Yunnan Province

    Rich and malty with hints of spice and smoke

  • When to drink

Brew the perfect cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a huge oolong fan – the sheer diversity of different flavours is pretty mind-boggling. My favourites are the creamy, almost buttery high grown oolongs grown in Taiwan.”

- Bethan, Specialist Tea Buyer


The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…

Terribly expensive and totally taste- and aromaless. Looks promissing but total disappointment!

Not sure it's worth the money - especially since I didn't spot it was only a 50g packet.
