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.
