From tea-adventure

While Yunnan Province is most famous for its Puerh Tea, you can also find green, white and black teas in the mountains of Yunnan. The most famous black tea from Yunnan is known as Dian Hong. This name is derived from the province’s name and the color of the tea. ‘Dian’ is another name for Yunnan and ‘hong’ means red. What is known as black tea in the west is actually called red tea in China due to the deep red hues that are associated Yunnan Black Tea with a freshly brewed ‘red’ tea.

Yunnan Black Tea has two main characteristics: taste and color. The taste is not like a normal black tea, instead it is much more subtle, round and sweet. The amber color makes this tea truly one of a kind.

The last week I’ve been tasting plain (or straight) black teas. So far this is one of my favorites, although I must confess not having tried Keemun, Golden Yunnan and Bailin Gong Fu yet… (which are supposed to be very good as well)

This is a very smooth and sweet tea. It has an earthy character with malty undertones. The sweetness precludes it from tasting too earthy.
