Origin:China Estate:Ancient Tree Tea Organic & Kosher
Exquisite black tea hailing from the cherished Ancient Tree Tea plantation located near the heavens on Jing Mai Mountain in Yunnan province. Approximately 6,000 feet above sea level, shrouded in mist, it's romantically reported that Tea grown here has been cared for by local hill tribe groups for a thousand years. The Ancient Trees have grown wild & naturally, no pesticides or chemical fertilizers - Mother Nature alone reveals herself in this broad, golden leaf. The smooth, full-bodied tea is reminiscent of lightly roasted sugar cane & finishes with the distinct cocoa notes of fine Yunnan.
