Autumn harvested tea from pure assamica tea trees growing in Guang Bie area of Bu Lang Shan in Menghai county of Xishuangbanna.
Bu Lang Mountain teas are well know for producing world-class ripe and raw pu-erh teas because they are strong and bitter with a sweet finish. The idea of making black tea from pure assamica is long-standing tradition. It was probably originally done for teas that wilted too heavily to be processed into pu-erh mao cha, so were allowed to wilt longer and then were processed into black tea.
Our Bu Lang Black Tea is a joy to drink. Lively and deep it will go many infusions without getting boring or flat. With some age it will continue to develop complexity for several years!
