Yixing black is also called as Yangxian black tea which has a history for more than 400 years. Yixing is a county-level city in Jiangsu province, in eastern China with a population of half a million.

The leaves are almost entirely made up of a considerable amount of buds which have a soft golden hue, a sign of high quality. The infusion is a amber, yellow color that is exceptionally smooth and delicate with a sweet malt flavor. A sweet, fragrant, full bodied Yixing black comprised almost entirely of exquisitely manicured single bud and single leaf pairs.The pairing of leaves and buds creates for a well balanced flavor spectrum between sweet and deep malted flavors , stimulating high notes. This is a rare, high grade, limited production black tea.
