Black Needle

Yunnan black tea consisting of golden needle shaped leaves presenting a flavor of red apple, cocoa bean, and the sweet flavor of roasted cane sugar.  

Black Needle is one of the finest examples of Yunnan black tea or Dian Hong.  The golden needles reflect the growth of newly sprouted leaf tips.  Hand-roasted over a wood fired wok and rolled by hand into a fine needle shape,  these traditional methods produce one of the best tasting black teas available.   Brew it strong but not bitter.
