Wuyuan Black

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.

Morning brew

Perfect tea for first thing in the morning!

Question: Who needs Starbucks?

Answer: No one who has Little Red Cup to provide tea for them! I start my mornings with Wuyuan Black, which is the best smooth flavor I've found anywhere. Most black teas I want to add sugar to -- I never do that with Little Red Cup. Strong flavor without harsh bite. It's the best!

Great tea

I bought this tea at a little wine store in Northampton MA and I loved it so much I just bought my second tin of it. Slightly Smokey, delicious with milk, it’s become my staple morning tea.


Fabulous and tasty tea! Wonderful customer service!

Nice change from English Breakfast tea

I'll be buying this tea in the future.
