Description
Brewing Suggestions
 
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.

Preparation:

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.

4 of 5 Good September 18, 2015
Reviewer: Mark Sciscenti from Santa Fe, NM United States  
This Yunnan is not quite as good as the Imperial, and has some harsh notes. I find that using more leaf and steeping for only 2 minutes works well to reduce the harshness but giving it more body.
