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.
It's good stuff!
The consistent favorites like the Yunnan Black are my everyday go-tos, but don’t sleep on the limited supply special release teas like the Rangsai Mountain Green!
I admit it - I am a tea "snob" in the way some people are coffee "snobs." I am particular about the tea and how it is brewed. And I know that anything Little Red Cup offers will be high quality. Yunnan Black is simply the best. No more tea bags, no more bland brews. It is rich, aromatic, and wonderful. Tea as it should be.
The Yunnan Black tea is my favorite of all of Little Red Cup’s teas. It is my everyday drinking tea and I also use it to make kombucha. While I’ve enjoyed all of the teas I’ve purchased from Little Red Cup, this tea is the one I keep coming back to. I refuse to buy any other tea at this point because it’s just that good!
