Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

Yunnan Golden Buds is a sublime black tea from Yunnan, the southwestern province of China, known as the birthplace of tea. With its red, fertile soil and misty, humid climate, Yunnan Province provides an ideal terroir for tea cultivation. Some wild ancient tea trees in the region are even claimed to be more than 1000 years old. 

Delicately hand-picked and artfully crafted, our exquisite Yunnan Golden Buds is solely made from downy buds that took on a gorgeous tawny colour after oxidation. Highly sought after by tea connoisseurs, this extraordinary black tea imparts wonderfully smooth yet complex liquor that harmoniously infuses cacao, honey, wild flower, baked sweet potato and earthy flavours. 

Black tea is known to be just as beneficial as green tea for our health and well-being. A recent study indicates several health benefits of black tea by demonstrating that flavonoids found in black tea boost the immune system to prevent flu and other viral infection and encourage the growth of healthy microorganism in the liver to boost energy metabolism and weight loss.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
