Product Overview

Yunnan is a region in China known for producing excellent black tea. Yunnan black is famous for its fat golden buds and our Yunnan Black Tea has a high concentration of these golden buds. Tea brewed from our Yunnan Black Tea has a reddish-brown color. The aroma is strong sugary and floral with a slight roasted undertone. The taste is smooth and sweet and the aftertaste is refreshing and clean.

During the third century BC, the central area of Yunnan, around present-day Kunming (major city), was known as ‘Dian’. The name Dian Hong means "Yunnan Black tea". Often Yunnan black teas are referred to as Dian Hong teas. Yunnan black teas vary in flavor and appearance. Some grades have more golden buds and a very sweet and gentle aroma without astringency. Others make a darker, brown brew that is bright, uplifting and slightly sharp. You may add milk to this tea (a longer steeping time is needed to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk).

First developed in Feng Qing, Yunnan, the tea produces a highly concentrated and full-bodied tea liquor with a very hearty and rich-tasting sappy sweet malty character with chocolate and yam flavor notes. As we can see the cake is pressed with tender golden-colored tips. It smells strongly of chocolate and malt. Once infused to a rich, honey-gold, the nose takes on caramel and vanilla notes. It is a slightly sweet, spicy tea with a finish of burnt caramel. Very smooth, minimal astringency.

Brewing Guide: The water used to steep this tea should be at the boiling point. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration.

    Who doesn't like golden bud that are sweet and caramel? It's like eating roasted vegetables. A hearty cup o' tea to round out a protein meal.
