The ancient art of hand-tying teas is one that has been around for over a millennia in China. Today’s artisans use long, tippy black leaves from the Yunnan province of China and gently tie them into a beautiful rosette. This rich, dark, chocolaty black tea is as pleasing to the eye as to the palate. Perfect for travelers, because a strainer is not necessary. The rich flavor can be resteeped multiple times by simply adding more hot water. Packaged in an attractive tin containing 4oz of tea.
