Rarely do we get tea from this far south in China. It is located in Northern Guangdong Province on the southern edge of the tea belt. It is named after the traditional western name for the capital of Guangdong. For centuries, Europeans brought tea from Canton. Although they were usually made farther north, this tea is a delightful discovery. We love dark honey flavors with a medium body.


Black tea.
