Yunnan Jig is a black tea from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Yunnan black tea is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips, and savoury cocoa and black pepper flavours. It is a very forgiving tea; will not taste bitter when over-steeped. Our Yunnan Jig black tea has a sweet, almost creamy aroma. Rich and savoury flavour, with a slight cocoa powder finish, this classic Yunnan tea is earthy and smooth.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3-5 minutes.

How long have you been growing tea and what got you started?
Yunnan is the hometown of tea. Fengqin is one the biggest tea area in Yunnan. Naturally I began to work in tea when I was 18. Now I have worked for more than 25 years.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
I get up at 6am and go out to work at 7am. The black tea season is around May and June. During that period my main job is to pick up the tea leaves. Normally I spend 8 hours for picking. Because our area is all mountains. I have to climb lots of mountains and take long walks. After picking season, my main job is weeding.
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
My favorite part is picking tea leaves. In early morning when I climbing the mountains, I can breathe fresh air. I like the feeling to be in the beautiful green nature.

fresh from origin

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It's believed to be the birthplace of tea, and home of the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height). This tree is estimated to be 1,700 years old! Yunnan's most senior cultivated tree, by contrast, is a relative youngster - a mere 800 years old. These are the large leafed tea varieties - Camellia sinensis assamica - which are also found in India. Yunnan also has the distinction of producing more black tea than any other part of China, although it's a relative newcomer to this variety. Black tea was first produced here in 1939, and is distinguished by its unique peppery, earthy and sometimes cocoa-like flavour.
