Origin Yunnan, China

Yunnan 'South Cloud' is regarded as one of the areas for the Genesis of tea. The Southern part of this province is home to the Mekong and Lancang river basins, lush mountains and for the famous Puer category of teas. It is also the native home of the 'Dayeh', broad leaf tea varietal.

Dian Hong

During third century BC, the central area of Yunnan, around present day Kunming (major city), was known as 'Dian.' Today, Yunnan black teas are often referred to as Dian Hong teas.

Yunnan Variety

Yunnan black teas vary in their flavor and appearance. Some grades have more golden buds and a very sweet and gentle aroma without astringency. Others make a darker, brown brew that is bright, uplifting and smooth.

Tippy South Cloud

Made at a 100% organic tea garden with a mix of black and gold tipped leaves. The color emerges as a result of withering (moisture drying of the leaves), a critical step in processing of the leaves. Only a few areas in Yunnan contain these type of plants. Other areas known to have golden tipped varietals are Hunan and Fujian provinces in China and Assam in India.

Best Season

Tippy South Cloud is special during late summer months. Since it is a heavy oxidized(darker) tea, it maintains its flavor well over the months.

Flavor Profile

Uplifting, smooth, full bodied texture with slightly smoky aroma.

Suggested Use

Brew one level teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces pure, spring or filtered at 185F for four minutes. Can be re-infused two times.

100% organic black tea leaves.
