Yi Mei Ren Black


Yi Mei Ren our featured tea of the month!
This tea is 15% OFF all month. No coupon needed.

This fervent Yunnan black tea has the familiar notes of bittersweet chocolate like other black teas from the Wu Liang Mountains, but with the complexities and lingering smoothness of an expertly crafted oolong.

Highly aromatic with a clear tea liquor brewing to a lovely deep golden hue, this tea's subtlety is most appreciated in its natural state.

Due to its higher levels of oxidization, this tea can be stored for several years, but it's so delicious we don't think that will be possible!

Spring 2023 Harvest.

Genmaicha (meaning “brown rice tea”) was discovered centuries ago when Japanese monks brewed green tea in their rice cauldrons. This particular high-end genmaicha uses green tea superior in quality and roasted sticky rice to create toasty aromas and a rich, nutty sweetness.

Don't blame us if you become as addicted as we did-- it'll have you swooning. We recommend experimenting with tea/water ratio, water temp, and steep times to get it just how you like it.
