Yunnan China Green tea: rich, loose leaf.

From the sub-tropical South West, this FOP grade Yunnan China green tea has a natural, full bodied character with a rich flavour. It has an unmistakably herbaceous aroma. The pale green leaf is carefully twisted. Infuse one teaspoon per cup with freshly boiled water that has cooled a couple of minutes then infuse for three minutes.

Sourcing our tea

This tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers and tea gardens that can guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    Yunnan Green tea I find requires steeping for a little longer than Gunpowder tea. It is my ‘go to’ tea, when I want something different, with its own distinctive flavour. I even found myself drinking it as my ‘start the day’ brew. Definitely recommend this as a very pleasant green tea. Slightly more citrus than Gunpowder tea, without the heaviness. Yet enough to perk you up in the morning. Full five stars for this one from me.

    Product: I order this tea every time as my basic green tea. Good quality and pleasant taste.
    Service: Nothing to complain about. Excellent teas, good service.

    Product: .
    Service: I have used Grey’s teas for a few years after coming across their website. I only buy Chinese green teas (and rooibos) and they have a good selection at a good price. The quality of the product is high and orders are delivered promptly. If they keep it up, not sure why I’d go elsewhere!

    Yunnan China green tea – It is green tea but only just – the flavour is very weak. I would not buy again.

  5. Ann Thorns (verified owner)

    Service: I have tried three other online sources for loose leaf tea and Greys had the selection of teas I wanted. I liked the website and information about the teas, but it would have been helpful to see the price before clicking to get the details for a particular tea. It was the best experience for buying teas on line and I shall stick to Greys for future purchases.

  6. Andrew Miller (verified owner)

    Product: I drink many different green teas but this is very much my favourite particularly first thing in the morning as it has a stronger flavour than most. I like my tea strong,almost bitter in fact, and this fits the bill admirably.
    Service: Very fast delivery and excellent quality teas.
