Description

China is such a great, big, humongous place we decided it was only fitting to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a great, big, humongous tin of Yunnan Tea! Ring in the Year of the Tiger with some of the strongest tea on Earth. If this stuff doesn’t put fur on your hide and make your mug growl you’re brewing it wrong. The history of tea begins in Yunnan, and you’ll see why this is the granddaddy of them all when you brew up a cup — it’s strong and smooth, spicy and sweet, rich and earthy. It has a thousand stories to tell, so listen up!

The labels on the tins were lovingly hand printed in Minneapolis by Aesthetic Apparatus, and each tin comes with a feisty tiger sticker to adorn the surface of your choosing. There are only 50 of these in the whole wide world so get one while you can.

Brew this Chinese black tea in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes. Enjoy a few more infusions, lengthening the brew time just a bit with each one.
