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.

I ordered the Wuyuan Black to replenish my supply of this very satisfying black tea. I also ordered the Yunnan Black for the first time. This tea was delicious, with a floral fragrance while steeping. The teas from The Little Red Cup are really so much better than what I am able to buy in the store; after steeping, you can see that the leaves are whole and not broken into little pieces. Thank you for making such teas available to the general public!
. . . on your tins of tea. I had you send her the Wuyyan and the Lapsang, because she drinks it black, and I she'd already told me that 'Lapsang Souchong is my favorite!' Haven't heard from the giftee, but this gifter at any rate remains entirely satisfied. Good luck and God bless, C
The wuayan black tea has a perfect balance of black tea taste and astringency (if that’s the right word - that little dance of sensation on the tip of your tongue when you drink it). There is nothing like the fragrance when you open the can or bag to make your tea. and when you pour it out steaming into the cup. Extra enjoyment if you are mindfully pouring it! It’s so refreshing and satisfying. Like no other tea I’ve had - I’ve been to China and to India so I’ve tried more than a few!
This is my favorite black tea. I drink two cups every morning. It has a slight smoky flavor and is the perfect tea to start the day.
Great taste and great company as always!
My husband and I have been enjoying this tea first thing in the morning. It is smooth, rich and has a great body. It has similarities to Keemun, with a slight hint of smoke.
