Yunnan, known as the birthplace of tea, is a province in southwestern China that borders Vietnam, Burma, and Laos. Yunnan translates literally to “south of the clouds”. Its diverse landscape offers everything from tropical rainforests to mountainous terrain and is home to a wide variety of plant species. The Yunnan region focuses heavily on agricultural production.
Yunnan teas are particularly delightful as breakfast or early afternoon teas.
The slender, gold-tipped leaves of Tippy Yunnan Black Tea yield a full-bodied cup with a slightly fruity taste.
Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.
