Organic Yunnan Black

Origin: Yunnan

Product Details

Our organic Yunnan Black tea (滇紅茶) hails from Lincang, a stone's throw from Burma and home to some of the oldest cultivated tea in the world. Hand picked and tightly rolled, the golden tipped leaves produce a deep amber brew — with light notes of grapes and honey. An instant classic.

Yunnan Black is available by 2 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

My New Daily Cup

From a Little Red Cup sampler set of black teas this one quickly became my daily go to. It is very light and so lends itself to drinking throughout the day. I often brew 3-4 mugs from the same leaves and it is never in the least bit bitter. The aroma of the dry tea is lightly sweet and fruity. When brewed a deeper yet subtle woody or earthy note emerges and I’ve noticed the spent leaves are reminiscent of seaweed or the ocean. The flavor has hints of all the aromas noted but so subtly light and balanced that no one stands out or overwhelms the others. A classic!

Beautiful tea, EVERY time

The consistent favorites like the Yunnan Black are my everyday go-tos, but don’t sleep on the limited supply special release teas like the Rangsai Mountain Green!

Simply the Best.

I admit it - I am a tea "snob" in the way some people are coffee "snobs." I am particular about the tea and how it is brewed. And I know that anything Little Red Cup offers will be high quality. Yunnan Black is simply the best. No more tea bags, no more bland brews. It is rich, aromatic, and wonderful. Tea as it should be.
