Organic Yunnan Black
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.
I got the sample box as a Christmas present and fell in love with Yunnan Black. It is now my go to tea. The service has been incredible. Thanks everyone!
I’m drinking it now. Love the flavor. Stimulating but not overly. The dry tea leaves are not as easy to handle as my favorite Jade Oolong. I’ll be buying it again.
This an excellent tea for me. I am replacing my coffee with Yunnan Black, For me it is bold and fresh taste that is great any time of the day. t
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!
Love this tea, which was a gift from my daughter.
