Yunnan is a region in China known for producing excellent black tea. Yunnan black is famous for its fat golden buds and our Yunnan Black Tea has a high concentration of these golden buds.
During third century BC, the central area of Yunnan, around present day Kunming (major city), was known as ‘Dian’. The name Dian Hong means “Yunnan Black tea”. Often Yunnan black teas are referred to as Dian Hong teas.

Other names: Yun Nan Black Tea, Gold bud, Yunnan Pure Gold


The leaves are purely golden in color and the infusion is amberish/yellow color.

After Brewing:
Tea brewed from our Dian Hong has a reddish brown color. The liquor is in bright red and orange color.

Exceptionally smooth and delicate tea, with hint of malty taste. The aroma is strong sugary and floral with a slight roasted undertone.

Another from dexter this one is a really smooth brew with lots of chocolate notes. This of course falls in to that comment dxter made a while back – about how many of a certain kind of tea do you really need? lol I quite enjoyed this one this morning and it makes me curious to try more es green teas if this is what they are selling. Thanks again for the sample dex!


Do you brew all these Western style?


depends on my mood. I always try to do a western brew because that’s how i take my travel mugs to work. if they don’t work via travel mug/western brew then it’s a harder choice to make in terms of keeping it in my cupboard.


Good idea. I’ll try half my samples gong fu and the other half western.




Ugh I know.


65 that are 20g or less. That’s still 2-3 cups, unless I make GIANT MUGS.

This was the tea I was drinking at work today. The lesson of the day was “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
I opened the samples packages and was immediately disappointed. The leaves were not all gold – about 60-40 gold/black – they weren’t as fuzzy as I would expect from a premium gold bud. Awwww – this isn’t what I was wanting.
It may not be the prettiest gold bud I’ve ever seen, but wow is it tasty. This is a great Dian hong. first couple of steeps are really chocolaty, smooth, sweet – but no starchy sweet potato. Fantastic tea. I’m really sorry that I only ordered samples of this – if I ever order from esgreen again – I’ll be picking more of this up.


Sounds like a treat :-)
