Glade of Bees

Assamica Red Tea 2022


Glade of Bees is a spindly 2 leaf, 1 bud red tea from the birthplace of all tea - Lincang, Yunnan China. Harvested and traditionally hand-processed during Spring 2022, this wild-arbor Assamica tea is rich, spicy, and honey-sweet. The balance of flavors is wonderful. It provides ostensibly endless steepings and we appreciate the uplifting but not overly stimulating qualities that you sometimes find in other red teas.

Origin: Lincang, Yunnan, China

Brewing Instructions

We like this tea brewed sidehandle for big bowls as a gently warming morning tea. It's also wonderful brewed gongfu in small pots with small cups. We find 200 F the ideal brewing temp with short steepings.
