Product Description


    This gourmet tea originates from Anhui, China, and it classifies as a black whole leaf blend tea. Anhui province provides the world with Keemun of the finest black teas. The dry leaf is dark black and partially open. Chinese Black Tea is produced in 16 hilly regions of central and southern China. This is a gourmet tea of good quality and value with dark liquoring. Although the caffeine level in this tea is 3%, it is still less than most coffees.

    Chinese black tea can retain its flavor for several years unlike green tea which can lose its flavor within a year.

Although green tea has taken an upward turn, black tea still account for 90% of tea sales in the western world. FOP stands for "flowery orange pekoe", which refers to the color of the leaves and not the flavor.
