Nurtured with a history of over 2,100 years, Yunnan is home to the world’s oldest tea trees. Here, warm tropical and subtropical climates create ancient teas that are an epitome of fine leaf artistry and complex flavours. It is said that the ethnic Pu people in Yunnan grew this tea in their gardens, offering it as a tribute to the emperors. It’s not a surprise that this tea is a staple of Yunnan communities for decades!
What makes it great
Yunnan tea is grown in a highly favourable climate offering a varied type of green teas, however, the best variety is this ‘large-leaf’ kind, with the highest taste profiles and accurate astringency, making them great to be infused for several more brews. Prepare to experience a tasteful legacy as you brew this tea, and catch yourself falling silent amid sips to enjoy the unfurling beauty of its leaves. Grown in mild, humid mountains this full-bodied brew is an easy drinking green tea that refreshes and soothes.
Taste and Aroma Notes
This smooth, vegetal tea is likely to fancy those with palates loving a deep malty finish and rounded hints of sweet smokiness.
Don't throw away your tea after steeping it! One of the greatest advantage of drinking whole leaf tea is that each serving of leaves can be re-steeped many times.
This tea can be re-steeped 3 times. We recommend using 3 grams of this whole leaf tea for 150ml of water
100 gms= 100 cups of tea,
We recommend returning to any used tea leaves within the day.
