Tasting Notes:

A high end gourmet black tea from China's Yunnan Province. When oxidized, these beautiful buds turn gold rather than black, resulting in a rich, smooth flavor. This tea is deliciously rich and malty, with lingering notes of chocolate and honey. Evokes a peppery sweetness. Its liquor is a characteristic brassy red color different from other black teas.

  • Black Tea is known to banish fatigue, stimulate mental powers, and raise energy levels. It has been shown to reduce stress hormone levels and acts as a nerve sedative, frequently relieving headaches. Black tea contains a number of vitamins considered essential for maintaining health, including Carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, has antioxidant and protective properties, Vitamin B1 and Panothenic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.

    Black Tea also contains antioxidants which may help to protect your body from the ravages of aging and environmental effects. Because they are allowed to ferment completely before drying, most black teas are especially rich in those polyphenols which have been shown to be effective against dementia in aging as well as AIDS related dementia. These compounds penetrate the blood brain barrier and have also been found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

    Black tea is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. It can be topically applied to cuts, bruises and burns, and is famous for its sunburn relief and has been shown to have a positive effect on preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

    A good strong tea to start your day. I find that it goes well brewed up strong with a splash of milk and some sugar (splash of nonfat and about a tsp of sugar to a 15 ounce mug). Good substitute for coffee in this manner of preparation. I used one heaping tsp of leaves per 8 ounces water, plus extra teaspoon for the pot, and boiling water for a 4 minute steep. I prefer teas with some more complex flavors, and usually without milk or sugar. That is my favorite way to prepare this one, though, and it is a good change of pace for me.—David
    This tea is very smooth and full of flavor!—tlg
    Had been using teas like Twinnings for my Kombucha, and thought I would try some of the teas from the Tea Spot. Used this Yunnan in the last batches and what a difference! A subtle smokiness and richness without any harsh notes. Great tea--came back for more—Doc
    lacks the distinctive cocoa tones of yunnan blacks and as mentioned earlier bereft of tips. Smokey like a lapsang souchong. I'll pass.—mike jeski
    has a little bite, but in a good sweet way! I like it best with some milk and sugar.—Marsha
    Dark, bold, smoky, and full-bodied black tea here. Slightly astringent aftertaste that produces heavy, malty notes. Unlike other Yunnans that I've experienced this tea doesn't appear to have as many tips... perhaps this is the reason that it yields a heavier body without the subtle sweetness that I'm accustomed to. Steep this tea for longer than 4 minutes and you can stand a spoon in it. —Robbie C.
