      Chinese Black Tea (Organic)

      Exquisite black tea from the cherished Ancient Tree Tea forests 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 the tea trees 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 reveals herself in these broad, golden leaves. Full-bodied & reminiscent of lightly roasted sugar cane, the cup finishes with the distinct cocoa notes of fine Yunnan.
