Yunnan is a region in China known for producing excellent black tea. Yunnan black is famous for its fat golden buds and our Yunnan Black Tea has a high concentration of these golden buds. Tea brewed from our Yunnan Black Tea has a reddish brown color. The aroma is strong, sugary and floral with a slight roasted undertone. The taste is smooth and sweet and the aftertaste is refreshing and clean. Often Yunnan black teas are referred to as Dian Hong teas. Yunnan black teas vary in their flavor and appearance.
