Chinese Black Tea

Yunnan Gold or Yunnan Sunrise

Our Yunnan Gold comes from the Fengqing region of Yunnan province in China, a mountainous region of southwestern China close to the border with Myanmar (Burma). Often referred to as Dianhong Tea, Dian Hong Tea, or even Yunnan Red Tea, this tea style is a relatively recent innovation developed in the 1900's as opposed to other Chinese teas developed hundreds or thousands of years ago. Our Dian Hong Tea has been farmed under biodynamic organic conditions and was plucked during the spring.

    I have tasted the tea and it is quite delicious. I gifted it to my sister for Christmas and she loves it. She is drinking it daily.

  • Favorite daily beverage!

    This is the tea that got me to quit drinking coffee and soda. Love the taste, and when Hillary told me to try it at 185 degrees, well...I was hooked. The lower temperature brings out its complexity and avoids any bitterness. A must-try.

  • Beautiful way to start the day

    Yunan Sunrise is a delicious, golden black tea - a perfect breakfast tea, as well as a tea for tea time. It is flavorful without being too bold. I am so glad I found it.
