This spiced black tea was grown in the renowned Yunnan Province, recognized for creating China’s best black tea. The mild climate, fertile soil and abundant rainfall yield plants with large leaves, which are specially dried to create a mild, bitter-free tea. Indonesian cinnamon is added for a barky, sweet aftertaste that cleanses the palate and leaves you feeling festive. A hint of cloves adds a touch of spiciness without overpowering the black tea base. In traditional Chinese medicine, cinnamon is often used to lower cholesterol, fight colds and aid in digestion, while also improving energy, vitality and circulation. Yunnan black tea is rich in antioxidants, and oil of cinnamon has potent anti-bacterial and anti-fungal characteristics.
