From Simple Loose Leaf

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.

Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Monday, February 1st: National Freedom Day / Black History Month  Tea #1
Somehow I have notaone tea from that lovely list of black owned tea shops.  For shame.  I looked through it a couple times.  I guess it’s eye opening to see where I mostly buy teas, when I do buy teas.  I really need to check out some of the smaller shops more often.  There are so many shops though!  Which are your favorite shops/teas from that list?
So I went with this black tea today.  It also just happens to be a sipdown.  I love this type of leaf – the silky black bundles.  Not sure if this is the same as Adagio’s Yunnan Noir – this one looks more black than Adagio’s gold.   I have noticed that any Yunnan tends to lose nuance with age which is a shame.  But it’s still a lovely cup of tea.

Mastress Alita

I remember quite enjoying Adagio’s Yunnan Noir!

I also checked over the list and will need to eventually plan out some orders for new companies! I have tried the Blue Velvet from Calabash and loved it!

I also don’t have any teas from that list of black-owned companies, unfortunately. I think this is partly because I usually buy from the same places and partly because these companies tend to sell flavoured teas. Oh, and most of them are in the U.S. :(

Same here I, unfortunately, don’t have one right now off that list either. I’d recommend Aesthete I’ve tried one of their teas in the past and enjoyed it. They are also a local company for me.

Lexie Aleah, thanks for the suggestion. I’ll have to check them out.

In the morning, cold
On my tongue pleasantly sat
such forgiving tea!

This tea was wonderfully forgiving! I think the best I’ve found for work. Drink it hot, drink it cold. Accidentally steep it for a half hour? Still drinkable without being metallic or otherwise gross! Forget to drink the last half of the cup before going home? Still drinkable cold the next morning! So great. Unfortunately, I’m writing this review after I’ve used up all of my sample, so I’ll not even try to trip over myself getting technical with taste. I just liked it, okay? xD
