Origin: Guanxi Province, China
Black Spiral is a malty, gold leaf black tea from Guangxi Province, one of the main tea-growing regions of China.
Representing some of the smoothest black teas from Guangxi, Black Spiral is notable for its prominent gold tips. Only certain tea plant varietals have the characteristic to transition into the gold color during leaf processing.
Golden-colored leaves generally provide a more honey-like texture to the brew.
Although the best season for drinking Black Spiral is summer, it is a very hardy tea and keeps well over the months.
