This China Black Gourmet Tea originates from Anhui, in east-central China, and it classifies as a black whole leaf blend tea. The dry leaf is dark black and partially open. This is a gourmet tea of excellent quality and value with dark liquoring.
Chinese Black Tea can retain its flavor for several years unlike green tea which can lose its flavor within a year. This made it an excellent choice for exporting. This China Black Tea was even compressed into bricks to serve as a form of currency in earlier eras.
Flowery orange pekoe is a high quality tea with a long leaf and few tips. The FOP stands for "flowery orange pekoe," which refers to the color of the leaves and not the flavor. It is considered first grade in the China tea grading system and is an excellent choice for black tea.

This tea is really, really good.
Thank you guys for carrying such a great tea. Rich and smoky flavor.... Lapsang Souchong tea is definitely one of my husband’s favorite, as well as mine. It’s been hard to find it until I tried your company’s brand. Thank you so much for having a great quality tea. We will continue ordering from you.
We have also order the “birthday cake” flavored coffee! I look forward to experiencing that as well.
As a avid tea drinker this was my first time trying this one. The smokiness is the first bouquet that tickles the senses, then as the amber sweetness encompasses your taste buds it's rich complex smoldering ember flavors of a very smooth black tea in it's purest form. I shared this with a co-worker who is also an avid tea drinker and he said that it was the most unique tea he has tried and really enjoyed it.
Awesome tea at cheap prices! There's not much more you could ask for.
Excellent dark tea to start the day!
