Yunnan Red - Dianhong - 滇红

Description

Dian Hong / 滇红 translates to Yunnan Red, where Dian 滇  is another name given to Yunnan, the province where it is produced, and Red relates to its type of tea.

Dian Hong is the tea that was industrially produced in Yunnan before the Dawn of Puer. Its flavor is very characteristic and easy to identify and not necessarily because of astringency or bitterness.

Our Tea does come from real old and wild tea trees, not from terraced plantations. Even though its lychee and fruity flavor its dominant, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t have that of Gushu “古树” (old tree) staple taste. Dried naturally under the Sun, what is known as Sai Hong Cha 烘茶  Sun Dried/Baked Tea

Remember Red Tea = Black Tea in the west concept of Tea.

 

Tasting Notes:

The fruity aromas of this Tea are very obvious and just by opening the can your senses will feel the fruits, but pay attention to the woody and caramel tones of it. Tasting this Tea always bring us to Lychee and Longang Season. Update, recently tried this tea with some friends, and they pointed out the resemblance this tea´s aroma has to orange blossom and citrus taste. We were so happy we decided to add this note as to remind people how tea taste can evolve and change.

 

Drinking Tips:

  • – Please try a cold brew out of this Tea!
  • – Pair it with Chocolates, Cakes, Breakfast, Fruits

 


Notes for Tea Nerds:

* All of our product pictures for the Tea soup features the middle infusion combined. (if the tea can be infused 8 times, then we combine 4th-5th to take the picture)

* All of our product pictures featured a bit more quantity of tea leaves infused, that’s because we have heavier palate and we are drinking the teas as we take the pictures 😉

* The number of infusions  for each product consider infusions with easily recognized taste, we do not count infusions that have its taste already fading away; said this each tea can be infused more times if desired. Also many of our teas can be boiled after being infused.
