Sangamon Sunset Red – Black Tea
Sangamon Sunset Red – Black Tea comes from the ancient tea trees of Yunnan. This tea is a beautiful long leaf tea withb sweet undertones that hints of honey and sour apricot. Additionally, its the recipient of the North American Tea Buyer’s Black Tea Award. We are proud to carry this tea in Missoula, Montana.
This exquisite tea comes from Jingmai Mountain in Yunnan. The Dai people have hand picked this tea from the ancient tea trees for millennia. Sangamon Sunset Red – Black Tea comes from a region in southern Yunnan where the 700 to 1,000 year old ancient tea trees grow. Because the ancient tea trees grow in a natural, rainforest environment, the leaf provides a unique combination of rich antioxidants and nutrients.
Sangamon refers to the last interglacial period when glaciers receded (approx 80,000 years ago), and just prior to the development of glacial Lake Missoula. This was a period of relative calm allowing the mega-fauna to thrive, including the woolly mammoth and saber tooth cat.
