China is the origin of all styles of tea, and this black tea hails from the area where the category was first invented—Fujian Province.
Made on a mountaintop farm at 3,000 feet elevation from the mei zhan cultivar, which produces large, slow-growing leaves, this tea is a classic easy drinker. It brews up a seductive, deep brick-amber color in the cup; rich flavors of cocoa and dried fruit—think apricots and dates—last through several infusions. Enjoy the sweet aroma and pleasantly weighty texture.
