Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea
Origin: Fengqing, Yunnan, China
Ingredients: A mix of golden buds and dark leaves
Harvest time: Hand-picked in March, 2011
Taste: A rich, complex but smooth and fresh taste
Brew: 1-2 teaspoons for 8oz of water. Brew at 205 ºF (95 ºC) for 2 to 3 minutes (exact time depends on your taste – a longer time will give the tea a stronger taste and color)
Health Benefits: Being a fully oxidised – or fermented – black tea, Dian Hong does not have the same level of antioxidants that our White and Green teas have, however it is still a good source of these and so will also help reduce the risk of cancers and lessen the affects of aging. Black teas such as our Dian Hong also are considered to help prevent tooth decay and help lower your cholesterol levels.
