Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Organic Yunnan Black Tea consists of large, golden-brown leaf tips which, when brewed, create a dark, coppery infusion. Its taste is best described as well-balanced with slightly sweet, spicy notes and a soft, smoky finish. Best of all, we pack this Black Tea variety fresh to order, thus ensuring quality and consistency time and time again.
This delicious, nutritional beverage also comes with approximately 40 milligrams of caffeine per 8-oz cup. If, then, you’re looking for a boost first thing in the morning, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better brew.
Furthermore, as its name suggests, it has received “organic” certification, meaning you can enjoy your cuppa with a clear conscience.
More on Organic Yunnan Black Tea
Our Organic Yunnan Black Tea, which comes from the Chinese province of the same name, is but one of many Organic Tea types stocked by us. The term refers to how it has been produced without any man-made pesticides and fertilisers, thus ensuring the welfare of the surrounding environment. This likewise contributes to the health and wellbeing of Tea workers.
But why should you choose organic? Products used during Tea production often contain nitrogen, which has a significantly negative impact on arable land. Worse still, whatever is not absorbed by the plants and the soil can find its way into our waterways.
This, in turn, creates massive nitrogen-fed "algal blooms" that destroy aquatic life.
Around 98% of sprayed insecticides reach a destination other than their target, typically travelling by wind and heavy rain. Ultimately, the radius of damage is not just limited to the immediate area of production. Indeed, it can spread much further.
Organic Teas, meanwhile, are certified by the regulatory body within the producing country and checked and certified again as they enter the European Union. The EU regulations on organic products are very robust and uniform across Europe.
Each container is checked and sampled, and if a Tea fails inspection, the container is resealed and returned to its country of origin. In other words, Organic Yunnan Black Tea has our guarantee of being the best of the best.
