The most common black tea come from India and Sri Lanka. Less well-known is the excellent black (red) tea that originates from the birthplace of tea – Yunnan province, China.
This fine example is grown in Mengku. At a height of 1950m is the Da Xue Shan Tea Garden.
Within the garden are some old tea trees aged around 80-100 years. Using natural farming methods, the Big Leaf trees are picked in April.
For a black tea, this Old Tree Yunnan has thick wiry leaves and an astonishing prevalence of golden tips, a sure sign of quality.
Yunnan is rich and malty with notes of caramel and chocolate. The age of these special trees creates a layer of refreshing honey. The lingering aftertaste is pure and mellow.
