- Unlike tea sourced from a monoculture tea plantation, this tea comes from tea trees grown in a bio-diverse region with an elevation ranging between 4,500 - 6,000 ft.
- The rich bio-diversity of this region impacts the natural and complex flavor of this tea.
- From the Lincang region of China's Yunnan Province.
- Although this tea is a fully oxidized black tea, it reminds us of fruit forward Dan Cong tea cultivars from Guangdong Province in China.
- Drink this tea without milk to fully enjoy the amazing complexity within each cup
- Unlike this tea, which is sourced from tea trees, most tea comes from tea plants continually trimmed (or topped) to maintain a height of between 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!
