China Yunnan Rare Grade

4 star average rating
2 Reviews Write a Review
This outstanding selection is composed of bold, well-formed leaves with a very high concentration of golden tips. The smooth, chestnut-amber cup has a rich, inviting aroma and creamy mouth feel. A suggestion of earth and malt join pleasant notes of spice and cocoa, lingering on the palate.

  • Yunnan Black teas have become a favorite after discovering them from a different vendor. First time with Upton. Nice tea. Aromas of malt and faint hint of chocolate. Brewed 2 sessions in my 2-cup Chatsford pot and the leaves held up well. I'll be ordering again.
  • Delicate and Nuanced

  • This Yunnan has a rather light flavor with subtle components. Less pungent, full-bodied or earthy than some of the Yunnan teas I usually prefer. A smooth, refined tasting tea.
