Angel's Comment:

A tasty and full-bodied black tea for everyday drink.

Dian Hong black tea, also known as Yunan black tea, is one of China's most famous black teas. Our Full-leaf Dian Hong has all the great subtleties and complexities in taste of a great Dian Hong, combined with a refreshingly bold aroma. It is meticulously processed by hand using the traditional “Gongfu” processing techniques, and then fully oxidised (fermented). While not containing as much caffeine as coffee, its moderate caffeine and lively taste are perfect to give you a good boost to get you started in the morning.
