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.
Please see our Brewing Guidelines for more information.

I have recently switched to consuming tea on a daily basis after finally giving up coffee for good.
I have been pursuing the perfect tea and organic and free trade were a must.
Finding your small company and receiving your thoughtful note in addition to this delicious tea has definitely enhanced my life in a wonderful way.
I look forward to hopping out of bed in the morning and thoroughly enjoying a cup or two to begin my busy day and then relaxing with another cup for "happy hour" late afternoon to wind down the day.
I never realized how tea can offer such pleasant energy when needed yet be so soothing to the nervous system and mind. Not to mention how delicious served black or with a splash of cream and bit of sugar as a real treat!
Thank you for sharing your love of tea and your superior customer service. I will definitely be back for more!
Gentle black tea. Hard to find such a thing. Mellow, can have multiple times a day. The majority of the folks in my family found this to be their Little Red Cups’ favorite tea from all the 12 of their teas they tried.
We love black tea and wanted to to try new kinds that weren’t in wasteful plastic bags. Great tea!!
It relaxes me which tastes great.
