From Basic Tea

This organic Dian Hong is an exquisite black tea from the Yunnan Province of China. Also translated as “Yunnan Red” due to the reddish infusion of the tea leaf, this handmade, smooth tasting tea can be compared in taste to top quality Assam teas from India. 3.5 oz $9.95

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a generous portion of this tea!

This is a very lovely tea. When I first looked at the dry leaf, I thought I was looking at a well-fermented Oolong because the leaves are very twisted and reminded me a bit of a high quality Formosa Oolong.

The tea is interesting. It has notes of Yunnan but is much more even in flavor, like a Ceylon. It also has some malty tones to it like an Assam. It’s very flavorful and yet mellow. I like this very much.
