From the Land of the Southern Clouds - Yunnan, China's southwestern highlands are referred to as the Homeland of Tea and is a major tea-producing region. Yunnan is known for its world-famous green, puerh and black teas. Our Superior Yunnan Black has plenty of shimmering gold tips with a bright, clear amber liquor. Deep, rich flavors of fruit and gentle spices accompany a lusciously full-bodied mouthfeel. During our Tea Master Roy Fong’s visit earlier this spring, he was able to adjust production process to produce a particularly sweet and well-rounded tea with fruit and chocolate undertones. An excellent value for special occasions as well as 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.
