Yunnan which translates to "South Cloud", is a province jammed into the South Western most part of China. Not only does it share international borders with Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, but there is a constant cultural exchange in these border regions which is distinct from the rest of mainland China. Tea was first cultivated in this region thousands of years ago and it still makes some pretty amazing teas. Our Yunnan Silver Needle is harvested in early spring.
