Ingredients: organic Chinese black tea
Origin: Landsun Tea Gardens, Yunnan Province, China
The Yunnan province lies at the southwestern corner of China just touching the Tibetan Himalaya and is dotted with several mountain ranges of its own. Known as one of the birthplaces of tea, Yunnan is home to some of the oldest tea trees in the world and the province boasts a climate well-equipped to grow tea. Landsun Tea is a multi-garden operation based in Lianhua Village, Simao Town. Their Dacao Tea Farm was the first tea garden in the Yunnan Province to receive organic certification in 2001. Since then, Landsun has converted all its land to organic cultivation. Landsun is most notably known for its poverty alleviation program in which it is helping to house, train and employ inter and intra-province migrants.
At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend black teas to be steeped for 3 to 5 minutes in water heated to a full, rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Like all true tea, black tea offers many potential health benefits. Research has found that tea (Camellia sinensis) can have many positive effects on human health, including improved cardiovascular function, cancer risk reduction, improved immune function, improved oral health, and help with weight management. Tea is also full of polyphenols, which are a class of antioxidant that help your body maintain homeostasis and balance your stress levels. Black tea specifically has been found to regulate blood sugar in diabetics better than other types of tea, according to a study done by the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
