Black Spiral 100% organic Famous Chinese Loose Tea
Plucking Season: Late Summer
Introduction: Black Spiral is a malty, gold leaf black tea from one of the main tea growing regions of China.
Hunan is located in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and south of Lake Dongting (hence, its name means "south of the lake"). Among well known attractions in Hunan are Changsha as a historical city, Dongting lake and Yueyang tower in Yueyang, Mt. Hengshan and Taohua-yuan nature reserve in Changde. It is also well known for its spicy food.
Black Spiral Varietal
Representing some of the smoothest black teas from Hunan, Black Spiral is notable for its prominent gold tips. Only certain tea plant varietals have the characteristic to transition into the gold color during leaf processing. Golden colored leaves generally provide more honey texture to the brew.
Although the best season for drinking the Black Spiral is during summer, it is a very hardy tea and keeps well over the months.
Flavor Profile: Very buttery texture similar to honey, full bodied, sweet potatoes flavor with subtle roasted undertones.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Black Tea Leaves
