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.

Great!

One of my favorites from Little Red Cup. Floral and delicate but still packs a nice punch.

Very Pleasant Tea!

I love this tea. It's a little sweet, very pleasant flavor, and not at all bitter. This is going to be a favorite! Tried some tonight with a few rose petals and they are very complimentary. Thank you for bringing us great teas!

Delightful black tea

The black snail tea is definitely strange looking at but it is very flavorful and easy to drink all day. The description was spot on and even my partner loves it despite usually being a coffee drinker. Happy to have this tasty black tea in rotation.

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.

PPS: I’m a grateful Veteran with no connection to the company

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.
