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.

    A Perfect Black Tea

    It's rare I find a black tea that tastes even better without milk, but Black Snail is one of the few. I can't find any astringency, just a strong, sweet, nutty tea flavor. Out of other teas I've tried, the closest comparison would be Golden Monkey. I started with the small tin, but I will be buying more in the near future.

    Favorite black tea

    Smooth flavor, never bitter. I always steep these leaves twice, sometimes even a third time and it's still as good as the first. Highly recommend.

    My Favorite Tea

    Really a great Tea, I never get tired of it. Rich clean taste and doesn’t get bitter even when I forget and let it brew too long.

    Smells good looks good

    I absolutely love this tea it is wonderfully fruity and floral but not too much. I find it just as enjoyable in the afternoon as I do in the morning.
