Yunnan Black

Origin: Yunnan

Product Details

Our Yunnan Black (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.

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.

Favorite Tea

The Yunnan Black tea is my favorite of all of Little Red Cup’s teas. It is my everyday drinking tea and I also use it to make kombucha. While I’ve enjoyed all of the teas I’ve purchased from Little Red Cup, this tea is the one I keep coming back to. I refuse to buy any other tea at this point because it’s just that good!

Black tea can be very hit or miss for me, so I only tried a sample of this one... and I will absolutely be ordering more. The flavor was wonderful, dark and rich and a bit malty. It kept its character through multiple gong fu infusions, and most impressively, when I oversteeped it on one infusion, it did not turn bitter and astringent. This turned out to be one of my favorites from my LRC order.
