About this tea

Tea Story

Southern China’s Yunnan province borders Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, with India’s Assam tea fields just to the West. Eighty percent of all known varietals of camellia sinensis come from this central and storied place. Yunnan Fancy is made from broad-leafed Dayeh, an ancient variety that only grows here. In spite of the long pedigree of Yunnan teas, the current style F.O.P. black tea types have only been produced for the last 60 years or so. Yunnan Fancy’s rich, full body is popular with those who love Peet’s coffees. While the aroma is toasty, floral and woodsy, the flavor is honey-sweet with firm fruity and spicy notes.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 heaping spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
