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.

Excellent Tea, Especially for Iced Tea

We are enjoying everything about this tea but its name. Thank you for adding this tea to your superb selection.

Very Good / Well priced

Very nice red / black tea. Good liquor color. Full bodied texture. Leaves open up well. Elegant, notes of fruit, mostly at the intersection of floral and mineral. 210 F the recommended water temp was too hot for me. 195 brings out the mineral taste I found. Six steeps 10 seconds to 60 seconds between w day of gardening and a night of baking

We discovered Little Red Cup this Christmas.
The flavor has kept us coming back. Black Snail deserves a nickname, it’s so smooth and unique-no bitterness, slight sweetness. The personable aspect of this company makes them a rare jewel indeed. I would enthusiastically send Little Red Cup teas to any of my friends and family as a gift.

PS: We’re about to re-order YuLu Green Tea, we drank Jasmine this morning. Yunnan Black has become a go to.

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.

Big Flavor and a big surprise

I never expected such little round balls would explode into enormous leaves bursting with flavor. Totally unexpected joy.

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.
