No. 56, Yunnan Green

Yunnan Province is not well known for making green tea, so often buying a good green from Yunnan leads to a great cup for a bargain. Such is the case with this tea. One of our lasting favorites, this brew offers prominent, leafy green vegetal notes,  followed by smooth, voluptuous floral nuance, which gives way to finish of light, pleasant memory of charcoal smoke. Complex and utterly satisfying.
