Laoshan is a small village near the sea in northeast China. Laoshan black teas are usually small and tippy, lacking the white pekoe-style hairs that give black teas their golden color.
Classic Laoshan Black, grown under the shadow of a sacred mountain, is very smooth and viscous with a robust flavor that has a distinct dark chocolate bite.
People often question whether sugar was added to this tea, but it's simply the weather and soil that make this tea naturally sweet and thick.
Classic Laoshan Black is one of our personal favorites at Tea Runners. It's a tea we always have on our shelf at home!
Tea Runners is also currently offering Imperial Grade Laoshan Black, the highest grade version of this tea. Get both to taste the difference!
