Our Yunnan Black (滇紅茶) hails from Lincang, a stone's throw from Burma and home to some of the oldest cultivated tea in the world. Hand picked and tightly rolled, the golden tipped leaves produce a deep amber brew — with light notes of grapes and honey. An instant classic.
Yunnan Black is available by 2 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.
Please see our Brewing Guidelines for more information.
The best black tea i ever drank...
Very strong flavor and caffeine.
I think this will make great ice tea.
I will be ordering more soon.
Thank you very much to Little Red Cup Tea Co.
for providing this excellent tea.
I usually prefer the malty, chocolatey black teas like Wuyuan black, but this tea has a nice lighter black tea. It has honey/grapey notes similar to a darjeeling, but much smoother. It's refreshing when hot or iced (cold-brew). I definitely recommend it for Summer time.
I was a little nervous ordering a pound of tea that I hadn’t tasted yet, but very happy with my purchase. This tea has a bold, slightly acidic flavor that makes great iced tea.
I received a package of Yunnan Black tea about two weeks ago, and immediately made a pitcher of iced tea. Delicious!
Many more pitchers to come, and I can't wait for cold weather so I can try hot tea.
Would highly recommend.
