The People’s Black Tea:

It is said that the first Yunnan black tea was made here in Feng Qing. It is also the origin of the golden tippy tea that was presented as a national gift to Queen Elizabeth II when she first visited China in 1986. To us, what matters more is the pleasant, oatsy tea liquor with that distinct apple flavour and slight bite of citrus that you can drink all day, leaving the mouth feeling fresh and moist anytime in the subtlest way. This friendly taste profile is possible only with select first flush, non-blended leaves properly processed and baked optimally for balance of fragrance and dryness. Our staff says it is the people’s tea. Aptly named.

Taste profile

Fresh aroma like that of a forest after the rain yet warmed with an overtone of cereal cookies and touches of apple, cinnamon and light accents of chilly pepper. Refreshing, pleasantly direct infusion that can be sweet when at lighter strength, and malty and lightly citric when stronger. Accents of orange peel and light apple sweet aftertaste.

Infusion tips

This is a versatile black tea for enjoying plain or with condiments like lemon, brown sugar or with milk etc. If you like to make it stronger, use more leaves and relatively shorter time for extra body and roundness. Optimum infusion temperature 95°C.
