The tea leaves are made of large-leaf variety black tea buds that covered with gold downy fuzz. The tea buds are bundled into cone. Looks like a small pagoda or snail.
Each tea cone is a bundle of around 3 gram tea leaf. 1 piece tea cone is enough to brew a nice cup of black tea. 2~3 tea cones for a 500ml teapot.
Once brewed, the tea cone gradually unfold into a chrysanthemum, yellowish brown in color.
Loose-leaf tea made easy:
Place 1 piece tea cone into a mug, steep it along with milk or honey. And you get a nice cup of afternoon black tea. You don't need to worry about the annoying tea residue floating everywhere---the tea leaves are already bundled together.

nice Review by Felton
I love the gold buds Dianhong you offered. This one is just a basic version compared with the loose leaves. Still a decent tea though, tasty, easy to steep with. (Posted on 10/6/2013)

love it! Review by Sabrina
This tea is lovely! It's a brilliant idea of tying 2 teaspoons tea leaves into a tea-corn! Just the right amount for a daily cup. Or you could simply use 3~5 pieces for a larger teapot.
Also, the tea will be ready once the tea-cron unfurled.
This really saves both time and energy for me.
I'm keeping a pack of this tea in my office as an ideal replacement of the tea bags. (Posted on 6/2/2013)
a real time saver Review by Baker LT
What I always do in the morning: I brewed a cup of tea, filtered, then poured it into my travel mug. Now I simply added several tea corns into the tumbler directly then filled it with hot water! A nice cup of tea is ready when I came to the office.
It tastes just right for me-a bit fruity, a bit smokey, wonderful! (Posted on 9/5/2012)
love this tea soooo much Review by Erica W
I love this tea soooo much! I have had some Yunnan golden buds tea balls before. The tea-corns are a lot better because the leaves are bundled together so you won't be bothered by the tea grounds. It feels really good watching the blooming tea flower floating over my sunflower mug. (Posted on 7/3/2012)
