Organic Black Snail

Origin: Yunnan Province

Product Details

Like our Golden Monkey - our Black Snail Tea is grown on a relatively small terraced tea garden that ranges from 600 to 1,500 meters above sea level in the rugged mountains of southwestern Yunnan Province - just a few short miles from the border with Burma.

Named for the twisted shape of the finished leaves - fancifully reminiscent of snail shells, this is a lighter, sweet black tea with hints of roses and plums  - perfect for afternoon tea times. 

Black Snail is available by 3.25 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.

Fantastic Tea and Price

I really enjoy this tea. My partner has been ordering it from here. I came to check out the website and I actually had thought this was a darker oolong originally. It has very similar qualities to an expensive dark oolong that I love. It's a really fantastic tea to steep more than once. Yesterday I had a second stepping and I actually thought the second stepping was better than the first.

Black Snail tea is a hit!

I've been enjoying my Black Snail tea from Little Red Cup. It's a good black tea (which I start my mornings with). I'm not going to stop drinking Wuyuan Black -- I still love it for its everyday appeal. But Black Snail makes for a nice, occasional change.

Wonderful Tea!

Really different from my usual go to black tea. Lighter and a bit fruity. Not bitter or very astringent. Very flavorful and a great change of pace. I have really been enjoying this for the last few days as an afternoon/early evening cup. It might not replace my strong morning cup, but really liking it a lot.
