Ancient Tree Black Tea

This is the most extraordinary tea we've tasted in several years! Sourced from trees averaging over 100 years old, this tea is harvested only once annually and has natural notes of juicy baked plum. Unlike tea sourced from a monoculture tea plantation, this tea comes from tea trees grown in a bio-diverse region in the Lincang region of China's Yunnan Province, with an elevation ranging between 4,500–6,000 ft. The unique environment impacts the natural and complex flavors of the tea. Although this tea is a black tea, the flavor reminds us of fruit forward Dan Cong oolong tea from China's Guangdong Province.

Black Magnolia Black Tea

100% Pure US Grown Black Tea

Black tea is the most popular type of tea among Americans. This particular black tea is lightly oxidized to allow for its more delicate flavors to come to the forefront of the tea.

This tea won first place in the non-commercial division of the Tea of the United States Awards in 2015.

This has flavor notes of sweet potatoes, molasses, malt, and stone fruit.
