This is the first time we are offering this tea or any 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 bought tea from Canton, though it was usually made farther north. This tea is a delightful discovery. We love dark honey flavors with a medium body.


Black tea.
