Black tea from Yunnan is among the most robust but refined black teas produced in the whole world! Typically Yunnan Black teas are made from Assamica or Assamica hybrid. Since the end of the Second World War Yunnan Black teas have steadily increased in popularity and in the last 20 years a series of interesting hybrids were developed that greatly enhanced both the diversity and taste of the tea!
White teas are also truly classic for tea farmers and drinkers the world over. There is a sweet, refreshing feeling imparted by white tea that has made it such a favorite. The processing for white teas is less laborious as compared to other tea types, but timing is still very important. We encourage you to taste from our unique selection, some of which are found no where else!
Yunnan Green tea is less well known outside of China but has been a staple of Yunnan and Chinese life for decades. The warm tropical and sub-tropical climates that support tea cultivation in Yunnan are numerous and Yunnan produces as much tea as the entirety of the rest of China. Tea can be grown year round but is typically un-plucked during the winter months from the middle of October to late February. The first flush Yunnan green teas are typically harvested in the last week of February just after Chinese New Year.
