Dian Hong black tea, also known as Yunnan black tea, is one of China’s most famous teas. Our Dian Hong possesses all of the subtleties and complexities of taste for a great black tea, as well as a refreshingly bold aroma. It is meticulously processed by hand under the traditional Gongfu processing techniques, and is then fully oxidized, or fermented. While not containing as much caffeine as coffee, the amount in this tea and its lively taste are perfect to give you a good boost to get started in the morning.

Our Yunnan Dianhong teas come from the Lida Ecological Tea Garden, in the southwest of Mengyou Town in Fengqing at an elevation of around 1800 meters. The soil here is fertile, with a high vegetation index; with over a hundred kilometers of ecological environment without any source of pollution, it is a famous and excellent place for producing Dianhong black tea.

Feeling the freshness of the fresh tea leaves.
An authentic Yunnan farmer, Mr. Zhou has been avidly contributing to the advancement of the tea business for over 20 years. A short chat with him revealed to us his passion and insistence for the traditional processes of crafting tea; he values the quality inside the tea, and his experience comes from spending most of his time along the tea mountains. Mr. Zhou is passionate about bringing out the natural essence of tea to share with tea lovers around the world, and he claims that the best environment for growing perfect tea is in Fengqing.
This Dian Hong black tea is produced in Fengqing, located south of Dianxi Longitudinal Valley. Fengqing is a country in the northwest of Lincang, one of the four famous pu-erh production areas (along with Xishuangbanna, Pu’er, and Baoshan), and is one of the original birthplaces of tea in the world. It is also famous for being the hometown of Yunnan black tea. Fengqing has a long history of planting, producing, and drinking tea, and contains a beautiful throng of mountains webbed with rivers.
This Dian Hong black tea is made from the Fengqing large-leaf subspecies of the Yunnan large-leaf. It propagates sexually and takes the form of an arbour tree, meaning that it can grow to over six meters tall. 1984, the Fengqing large-leaf species was certified by the Chinese government as a national grade.
It contains an abundance of tea polyphenols (30.2%) and catechins (13.4%), as well as 2.9% amino acids and 3.2% caffeine.
The best place based on natural environment to grow tea is in Fengqing, Yunnan, which is where Dian Hong black tea was first produced in the 1930s. The first batches were instantly popular and quickly exported through Hong Kong to England and other western countries, and nowadays Dian Hong is one of the most respected and best-known types of Chinese black tea. It is held with the highest regard in China, and is often presented by the government as gifts to visiting dignitaries.
