Organic Yunnan Black

Regular price $24.00

Gourmet Black tea from Yunnan province is generally known Dianhong Tea. The main difference between specialty Dianhong and other Chinese black teas is the amount of fine leaf buds, or "golden tips," present in the dried tea.

Dianhong teas produces a brew that is brassy golden orange in color with a sweet, gentle aroma and no astringency. Cheaper varieties of Dianhong produce a darker brownish brew that can be very bitter. Our loyal guests can rest assured that this variety is the best Bird's Pick!

Price reflects 4 oz. of loose leaf tea.
