From Happy Earth Tea

This is one of the earliest 2020 organic black tea from Yunnan, China. Lighter in body than our regular Yunnan Gold tea, the smooth dark tea has lovely floral and chocolaty notes.

DRY LEAF: Well picked, wiry and full of golden tips with a mix of sweet floral and wheat fragrance.

WET LEAF: Dark woody color with a floral-fruity nose. Almonds, rose, apricot and some of the notes.

CUP: Amber liquor with an aroma of cacao, slight malt and dark honey notes. On the palate you get mid-to-heavy body with notes of chocolate, light tannins, and flowers. It is brighter and slightly lighter than our regular Yunnan Gold tea.


1 tbsp or 3 gm per 8 oz cup 195 F 3 mins. Second steep 5 min.


Simao region, Southern Yunnan. Inhabited by Wai tribe.
Harvested: 5-16 March 2020
60-year-old bushes

Superlative Yunnan Tea!
This is, quite literally, one of the very best Yunnan teas that I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. It is sweet with notes of chocolate and caramel, as well as an apricot fruitiness. There are pronounced and pleasant rose like floral notes. There is also a mild maltiness with a subtle hint of almond. The overall best description of this superlative Yunnan tea would be Darjeeling-esque – In both aroma and taste – The love child of a tippy Yunnan and a second flush Darjeeling if you will. A single steep with a water temperature of 200-203F for four minutes worked best for me.
This tea will be a permanent item of my tea pantry for sure! Happy Earth Tea has the fastest shipping I have ever encountered, and I can’t wait to try the generous sample of premium Colombian black tea they included with my purchase!

Flavors: Almond, Apricot, Caramel, Chocolate, Floral, Fruity, Malt, Rose

Do they deliver outside US? I have to find out!


Martin, I just contacted Happy Earth Tea. The owner is going to contact me about international shipping and I will let you know as soon as I find out something.


Martin! Happy Earth Tea has international shipping and can ship to the Czech Republic! The owner is very nice and their service is excellent – Their tea is top notch! The owner said that there could be customs delays but they have not encountered any delivery problems. Here is a link to their website
Hope this helps, my friend. Get ready for some delicious, high quality tea! :)

Thanks, I need to get some money and then I will find out the teas :)

They deliver to CR, yes, they do. But for 3 oz of tea worth 16 USD I should pay 24 USD per shipping. Uhh…
