Wild Mountain Yunnan | Black Tea
*2019 People's Tea Choice Award for Best Hot Black Tea at the World Tea Expo
*2019 Bronze Medal Winner in the Global Tea Championship
Description: Entirely hand-made from wild tea trees and grown at 6000' elevation, this amazing black tea is wonderfully aromatic and produces an incredibly complex cup. It's full-bodied, extremely smooth and silky, slightly sweet, earthy, and licorice-y. If we had to describe the flavor, we would call it "black rose."
This tea is made by Ms. Zhao Yu Jie in the far Southwest corner of Yunnan, China. She also makes many of our finest puers and Yunnan black teas.
