One of the finest black teas produced in Yunnan province, Peregrine Mountain has both delicious complex flavor and a Chinese legend about it. The legend says a young boy had to make a choice to either free a trapped Peregrine, caught in a snare laid by a local warlord, or let the bird die. The bird spoke to the boy and promised if he set him free, he would lead him to a field of undiscovered tea from which he could make much money, some to pay a tribute to the warlord, and some for himself. The boy set the Peregrine free and so Peregrine Mountain tea was found.  This is the first flush (first picking) of the season picked in the spring.
