Yunnan Love Hearts
The ancient tea makers of Yunnan developed the method of pressing tea into miraculous shapes back in medieval China. To create their works of art, only the finest teas from gardens high in the clear air of the Yunnan mountains were used. When processed into their tiny forms, whether a bird's nest, crown, flower, or in this case a heart, the teas they created took on a life of their own, transcending the time and place of their creation.
Nowadays, a visit to Yunnan will show that the same level of care goes into the production of the province's famous pressed teas. The finest leaf available makes its way to the factory where it is steamed and pressed into forms before drying. This tea is fresh and full-bodied with subtle honey notes.
Yunnan Love Hearts come in a heart-shaped tin containing 12 hearts.
