Photo of Leaf of Jingmai Mountain Wild Arbor Black Tea of Spring 2018 from Yunnan Sourcing by Alex Zorach

Loose-leaf black tea, wiry and tightly curved, with lots of golden-orange tips, in a ceramic bowlView Full Resolution

This loose-leaf Dian hong, or black tea from Yunnan province, has a wiry, curly leaf shape with abundant golden tips. Corresponding to its tippy quality, it is relatively smooth in flavor and quite caffeinated, although not as much so as some teas that have an even greater portion of buds.
