China FOP black tea. A great value and enticing taste and aroma. Enjoy this strong black tea which has a very smooth and pleasurable taste at a great price! This is a black tea from Yunnan province in China and grows at around 5,000 feet elevation. This tea shows golden tipped leaves, a deep liquor and brings forward a robust yet smooth aroma and roasted, slightly earthy tongue with a wonderful kiss of an aftertaste so you don’t forget – and you won’t.
Yunnan black teas are known for fragrance as well as flavor and has been enjoyed for thousands of years.. I’d like to suggest adding tasting this tea to your things to do list this. This tea is great as an every day tea either hot or cold and is a wonderful tea for blending. Why not get creative and make yourself some “Orange Tea” or perhaps some “Berry” tea. Call a friend and have some fun.
