Origin: Jiangxi Province
Good black tea can be sublime — rich, robust, fragrant. Our Wuyuan Back (Wuyuan Hong Cha 婺源 红茶) is all of those and more. It makes a lovely rosewood colored brew, the scent signaling Tea Time. It is grown in Wuyuan County in the northeast corner of Jiangxi Province, not far from Anhui province, the origin of Keemun teas. Wuyuan Black is technically a Congou tea.
Wuyuan Black can be made as light or strong as you prefer without fear of bitterness. It’s a lovely go-to tea, suitable for that first cuppa in the morning, a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up, iced on a hot summer’s day or even for a nightcap for those who like a cup before bed. We generally have several pots of tea available all the time, and this is always among them. It is simply everything a great black tea should be.
Wuyuan Black is available by 3.5 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.
See Brewing Guidelines for more information.
While I prefer green teas, this tea is my favorite black tea. It is smooth in taste, no bitter after taste. Makes a great ice tea.
I was in search of a good morning tea and had tried a wide variety of teas that primarily had the word “breakfast” in its name. But none could compare to the Wuyuan Black. I don’t add milk to tea because I want to taste the full flavor and character of that tea. Wuyuan Black is a strong, full-flavor, no bitterness tea and has become my go-to morning cup.
Little Red Cup Tea’s Wuyuan Black is, hands down, one of the best, if not the very best black tea I have ever had. Having had the chance to begin my day with a nice cup (actually, more like a whole pot) of Wuyuan for the past couple of weeks now, I cannot honestly imagine being able to live without it :-) Thank you so much for bringing such wonderful tea leaves into my life!
Enjoying every cup of Wuyuan Black. A perfect tea to start my day.
