caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Yunnan Noir is a black tea from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Much of the tea in this southern province is a large leaf variety. Mountains veiled in mist, with clean water and rich soil form ideal growing conditions and contribute to the unique flavor. Our Yunnan Noir is a hand-rolled tea, with leaves tightly curled into a 'black snail' shape. The aroma is sweet with hints of honey and spice. Savory and winey on the palate, with smooth, deep fruity astringency, tremendous depth of flavor, cinnamon bark and nutmeg in the finish. Terrifically textured cup of tea. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Wonderful Dian Hong. Strong notes of malt and chocolate. Could drink this all day every day.

      This is my absolute favorite black tea. It is bold but smooth and naturally sweet. I don't add anything to it. It tastes rich and thick, but the price tag isn't too bad!

      Mildly bitter and round in flavor, this tea is one of my favorite mild ones I've tried. Totally a drink-again and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to shy away from the more strong bitter teas like scottish breakfast.

      I love STRONG teas: Lapsang Souchong in the morning and Scottish Breakfast in the afternoon. When I want a smooth and elegant cup in the day, Yunnan Noir is my new turn to.

      This tea reminds me of Teavana's Golden Monkey. (I haven't tried adagio's Golden Monkey yet.) It's very smooth. Tried it with honey the second time around, and it was delicious.

      This is my go-to black tea. It's strong but not harsh, just the thing to get me going in the morning.

      Steeping this one the correct amount takes time and patience, but the end result is a warm, earthy tea that's a great replacement for Teavana's Indonesian Gold.
