A Yunnan tea picked from Da Ye tea bushes, it reveals notes of honey, fruit and leather. Rounded and aromatic, it can be enjoyed at any time of day.
Yunnan black teas are also called Dianhong Cha, which can be translated as "red tea of the kingdom of Dian". Dian is the name given to Yunnan province in ancient times, while "red tea" refers to the tea's colour. Indeed, in China, what we call "black tea" is referred to as "red tea" due to the beverage's copper colour.
A delicious tea to go alongside breakfast or afternoon tea, as well as dishes that include meat or mushrooms.
