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.

A really nice tea for sipping while working in the office on a cold afternoon. I particularly enjoy the unique looking leaves and how they unfurl; I'll experiment with a longer brewing time to bring out more flavor -- after a quick brew, the steeped leaves have a pleasant smell that's reminiscent of sweet raisins.
