We are proud to offer a Certified Organic Black Tea from Yunnan. This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April.
This "Pure Bud" Black Tea (单芽红茶) is a Yunkang #10 varietal growing at and altitude 1300 meters (4300 feet) on the southern slope Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City). The processing is typical of black tea with sun withering, rolling, oxidization (about 2.5 hours) and finally drying.
This pure bud black tea is sweet and malty with honey taste and aroma. It is neither astringent nor bitter, and can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style.
Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).
