From Indigo Tea Company

Full-bodied, cedar-like aroma, malty and earthy flavored black tea from China’s Yunnan Province. Organic China Yunnan Black Tea is great any time of day, and it often gives a fairly good second steeping, rare for black teas. Also nice iced.

This has been my morning staple for about three years. The first time I had Yunnan tea it was a Yunnan Gold from Tea Source, I think. My friend thought it smelled like a horse. I was a little more optimistic. I have very faint memories of that tea but I remember it having a bold, deep, earthy flavor.

My next venture into Yunnan territory was another Yunnan Gold from Adagio and, after that, I was hooked. I went to what was, at that time, my local tea shop in Minnesota and picked up a bag of this Yunnan. I’ve been drinking it ever since. It’s the best coffee substitute I’ve come across so far. Strong, deep flavor. Nothing fancy like a Yunnan Gold. Definitely not as complex or rewarding but, for early mornings, it’s perfect. I go through way to much of this stuff to make upgrading to a Gold feasible, anyway.

Stands up wonderfully to cream and sugar.

a Horse!? Oh my! :)

I know!! Although comparing drinks to farm animals is something I also do on occasion. I remember a yerba mate latte that, upon first sip/smell, made me think “goat.” However, with about a tablespoon of honey, it was perfectly drinkable.

I can recognise the horse thing. I’ve had a few teas too where I thought ‘cow stable’ when smelling the leaves. A spicy sweet sort of cozy smell.
