From the Land of the Southern Clouds - Yunnan, China's
southwestern highlands called the Homeland of Tea and a major
tea-producing region. Yunnan is known for its world-famous green, puerh,
and black teas. Our Superior Yunnan Black has lots of shimmering gold
tips, bright, clear amber liquor, and deep, rich flavors of fruit and
gentle spices with lusciously full-bodied mouthfeel. This year's edition
is particularly sweet and well-rounded with an apricot note, an
excellent value for everyday drinking.
To prepare Superior Yunnan Black tea we recommend either a
regular teapot, individual steeping cups, or a miniature Yixing clay
pot. Allow approximately one teaspoon of leaf per person and infuse for 1
to 3 minutes in near boiling water, depending on desired strength.
Superior Yunnan may be re-steeped several times. After the first
infusion you may wish to gradually increase the steeping time, and for
the third and subsequent infusions, water which has just come to a boil
may be used.
