Description

Nine Bend Black Dragon Tea - Loose Leaf Pouches

The Nine Bend Black Dragon Tea blend from English Tea Store is full bodied with deep burgundy depth and delightful oaky notes. This fabulous tea is one of the finest examples of a Chinese black tea available on the market. Incidentally, it is also considered to be one of the luckiest teas in all of Asia.

In 1851, a tea producer, Mr. Huyinca, named this blend from the lucky 9 Bend River that flowed through his birth-place of Wuyishan (9 is a lucky number in China), and the symbol of the black Dragon, long considered lucky in China. His tea had won just about every award there was to be won throughout China and Europe. As its popularity grew, the tea came to be regarded as a precious gift amongst the nobility and ruling classes of both places.

Available in 2 sizes (Please select from the options above):

To me, this tea had a stale aftertaste. The initial flavor was good, strong, but fell short in the aftertaste category. Stale Flavor

What a smooth taste! I don’t think there is an astrigent leaf in the bag. It can be rather forgiving to "over steeping". I will definitely be re-ordering. Smooth tea

This tea has the smooth black tea taste of Keemum Panda combined with a hint of fresh-out-of-the-oven homemade bread. How can you top that? This is what premium is!
