- Unlike tea sourced from a monoculture tea plantation, this tea comes from tea trees grown in a bio-diverse region in the Lincang region of China's Yunnan Province, with an elevation ranging between 4,500–6,000 ft. The unique environment impacts the natural and complex flavors of the tea.
- Although this tea is a black tea, the flavor reminds us of fruit forward Dan Cong oolong tea from China's Guangdong Province.
- Drink this tea without milk to fully enjoy the amazing complexity within each cup.
- Most tea comes from tea plants continually trimmed to maintain a height of 3–4 ft. What happens when a tea plant isn't continually pruned? The plant becomes a tree. The source for this tea comes from tea trees between 40–80 ft. in height!
