Black Tea

Organic Yunnan Breakfast

Enlivening, Spicy, Smooth From Da Hei Garden, Yunnan, China Crafted by Tea Maker Yang Jian

It's rare to find a breakfast style tea from an organic single garden, but tea maker Yang Jian produces something very special high up in Yunnan's lush, subtropical mountains. It perfectly combines the comfort and satisfaction of a rich black tea, with distinctive notes of honeyed malt, ripe berries, sweet spice and a standout milk chocolate finish.

Organic Yunnan Breakfast

云南滇红茶

Unlike many breakfast teas blended for uniformity, this organic breakfast tea encapsulates the character of its origin and maker. It's a tea crafted for quality and flavour rather than quantity. Deep in the subtropical lush mountains of Yunnan, the large leafed Assamica varietal of tea bush grows abundantly in Da Hei garden. From these bushes, tea maker Yang Jian coaxes out flavours of malt, ripe plum and hints of sweet spice. Enjoy with or without milk but know that a splash of milk emphasises the standout comforting chocolate finish.
