Excellent fullness with a subtle China sweetness. Only produced in March and April when the mountain air is moist and cool. The altitude of Yunnan province creates an absolutely perfect environment for growing tea. The tea there is grown at very high elevations ranging from 4500-6000 feet above sea level. (Interestingly it is the height that gives the province its name; Yunnan translates into English as "South cloud"). The altitude combined with thewarmth and humidity of the highlands creates a natural greenhouse that Yunnan teaplants thrive in. Ying Ming Yunnan like most Yunnan teas is known by its full-bodied and slightly sweet flavour. It makes a stylish breakfast tea.
