The golden circle of black tea is an important factor for testing the quality of black tea.

If it is a mid-range black tea, the sprout content is small, and the golden circle will be less yellowish.

There is a ring of golden glow along the tea cup attached to the tea cup, which is called the golden ring. The thicker the golden ring, the more golden the color, the better the quality of black tea.
