This exquisite tea is harvested from ancient tea trees in China’s Yunnan Province, one of the world’s best tea growing regions. With a deep, well-rounded taste, each sip contains a complex array of flavors ranging from ripe fruit, cedarwood, peppery spice and sweet raisin. Subtle notes of cocoa whisper gently during this tea’s malty, lingering finish. Rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties.

Yunnan, China


Our elegant, embossed tin is designed to keep tea fresh and full of flavor.

A tin of Ancient Yunnan holds approximately 36 teaspoons (12 tablespoons) of loose tea. The number of servings-per-tin varies depending upon the type of tea, leaf size, cup size and desired strength (amount of tea used).

The tin itself measures 6.25 inches tall, 2.75 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Although one tin holds 16 fluid ounces by volume, the actual ounce weight of the tea within varies depending on the density of the leaf.



  1. A CLASSIC essential-for-the-cupboard Yunnan

    Posted by C B on 8th Aug 2019

    Black leaves with touches of gold. One heaping teaspoon seems to make the perfect brew. This is everything I want and expect in a classic Yunnan tea. The brew is black as night, the mouthfeel is smooth and silky, no astringency or bitterness can be found. Even the third steep in which I only filled the mug half full was very delicious and full of flavor. Lovely chocolate notes with hints of sweet potato and even a bit of a starchy quality. It's a lovely tea. I really like it. I'd stock up on this one. The cupboard must always have at least one Yunnan!
    Steep #1 // 1 heaping teaspoon for a full mug // 16 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
    Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep
    Steep #3 // (half mug) just boiled // 6 minute steep

  2. Love it!

    I love black tea and after finding Amber Dragon in a charming little gift shop and thoroughly enjoying it, I looked into Octavia's other choices. Ancient Yunnan has joined my list of favorites-it is everything a true black tea lover enjoys! Love the part about ancient tea trees too!
