STAFF FAVORITE!

“This is a perfect black tea. It’s both bold and silky, and who can resist those cocoa notes?"

-Kaytee E.

Available in 2 ounce quantities only.

Entirely handmade from wild tea trees and grown at 6000’ elevation, this amazing tea produces an incredibly complex cup; full bodied, extremely smooth and silky, slightly sweet and licoricey. If I had to describe the flavor, I would say “black rose.”

This tea is made by Ms. Zhao Yu Jie in the far Southwest corner of Yunnan, China. She also makes our Big Snow Mountain Puer. Read more about Ms. Zhao’s teas!

Suggested Steeping Instruction:

Use 1-2 heaping tsp (3 grams) per 8oz boiling water. Steep 3-5 min.

I am a big fan of Chinese red teas and wild Chinese teas. This one comes from wild trees in Yunnan province. It is delightful but probably not worth the price at $32.89/2 ounces. The dried leaves are black, long and twisted with a sweet caramel aroma. The wet leaves smell of burnt raisins. TeaSource describes this tea as “black rose and licoricey”. I don’t taste that. The brew is a light golden color with a naturally sweet flavor of stone fruits and malt with a strong muscatel aftertaste that lingers in the mouth for a long time. The flavor develop more as the tea cools. I haven’t tried it gongfu style yet, but I bet you could get a lot of flavor from multiple infusions. I enjoy this tea but will probably not keep it as a regular in my cupboard because of the cost.
