Amore Tea 109 is Dajinzhen Golden Needle, a premium pure gold Yunnan black tea shaped like a golden needle, made of the purest buds of Camellia Assamica dayezhong varietal. It takes its name from the appearance of the leaves that consist of only large buds, resembling golden needles. The characteristics of this tea give a more intense aroma, and a fuller body.
During the last processing phase, the soft needle-shaped buds are oven-dried at a temperature of about 110°C, where they transform into beautiful golden buds. The liquor is smooth and presents with beautiful amber textures and hues with notes of molasses, dark cocoa, autumn fruits. As the buds gently open during steeping, they release a more intense honey sweetness accompanied by the typical woody aroma of wild forest trees. A satisfying and nurturing tea.
