China Black Special | Black Tea
Tightly curled leaves steep up dark, full-bodied, and without any rustic edges. It has tobacco sweetness with a spicy clove-like character that likes to hang around. A great value.
This tea is back and better than ever! Known as Hong Luo or “Black Snail” (due to its appearance), this tea was produced in June of 2020 from a local cultivar growing at almost 6,000 feet in Cang Yuan county of Yunnan province. This lot has a finer pluck of 1 leaf and a bud, giving the cup a more definitive flavor and mouthfeel.
