Here's a good Yunnan with some gold tips.  It could easily become your daily cup. A little more earthy than an Assam, takes well to milk, a robust cup.  Authentic Yunnan from the southwestern province of China of the same name, home to ancient forests of tea trees.  Certified Organic.

I Must Have Ordered The Wrong Tea..

I used to drink a black tea (Yunnan) when they had the tea shop in Tarrytown. It tasted really malty which i loved but this does not taste like that at all..

The one you are referring to is Dian Black. That is the premium Organic Yunnan with an abundance of gold tips, very rich and was a customer favorite at the Tea Room.


Received my order yesterday.. Had a cup of this tea last night. It is soo good. This has to be the best Yunnan I have ever had. This was also my first time purchasing tea from Silver Tips but it won't be the last.

Glad you enjoyed it - one of our new lots recently received. I sometimes blend it in with the Organic Assam and it becomes even richer. And glad to have you as part of our Silver Tips family!

Tea Education

We often get asked for a Tea similar to Assam but also different. Ancient Forest Yunnan fits that bill. The region of Yunnan in China boasts of some of the oldest trees in the world, hence the reference to Ancient Forests. Yunnans have a richness similar to Assams but also an earthiness that complements the hearty quality of the tea. This one is Certified Organic. For a even higher grade of this tea, try our Dian Black. For our blend of Assam and Yunnan, try our Silk Road blend.
