What is Ying Ming Yunnan Tea?

Graded as a Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP), Ying Ming Yunnan Tea consists of hand-crafted leaves with plenty of tips. Upon brewing, expect a bold sweetness like no other and an indulgent aftertaste.

Yunnan, located to the west and away from the fighting, became a viable alternative. The industry hasn’t looked back since!
