Weight: 30 grams (1.06 oz)
Type: Black Tea - loose leaf
Production area: Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan

Most of the black teas in the world are made from monoculture tea bushes. Tea makers in Yunnan in recent years started to use leaves picked from old-growth tea trees, which are primarily used to make pu-erh tea, to produce black tea. The result is a tea that is bold, robust, durable, and incredibly delicious. This tea offers a bouquet of almond and cocoa that is wonderful to be drunk plain or with milk.

This edition of the Yunnan Black from Old Trees, as compared to the previous edition, is comprised of leaves from trees that are much older, thus enhancing the teas complexity and texture. A black tea made from such premium materials is hard to come by and guarantees a unique sensory experience not found from other black teas. It is worth every penny.

most lovely black tea ever 10/20/2021
By Lynn B
I have ordered this tea multiple times and every time I intend to sit and write, but it never happens!! Today I just finished a cup and I have to say that this tea is the most lovely black tea ever! The floral notes on the back of the tongue are amazing, the earthiness mixed with the floral is wonderful. This has become my daily treat in late morning - to sit quietly and savor each sip. I just ordered the Apple Spice black tea which is also very lovely. I will have to do a tasting of each side by side, what fun!! If you have other recommendations for black tea, please pass them along. Thank you for offering these wonderful teas.

Comparing two black teas 10/31/2020
By Bridget Highfill
I wanted to try this against the Golden Tip Nepalese Black Tea. I found the Yunnan Black Tea to have a layer earthiness that the Golden Tip doesn't have. Both teas have that malty sweetness that make them such a comforting drink for a quiet Saturday morning. They are both Amazing.

Our responseThank you for your tasting notes of both black teas. The differences speak to the outcome of tea made from different types of leaves. That's what makes tea such an interesting topic.
