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. Tea brewed from our Yunnan Black Tea has a reddish brown color. The aroma is strong sugary and floral with a slight roasted undertone. The taste is smooth and sweet and the aftertaste is refreshing and clean.

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. Yunnan black teas vary in their flavor and appearance. Some grades have more golden buds and a very sweet and gentle aroma without astringency. Others make a darker, brown brew that is bright, uplifting and slightly sharp. You may add milk to this tea (a longer steeping time is needed to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk).

This item looks similar with an ordinary ripe pu-erh cake, however, it is not pu-erh tea at all, this is a rare cake pressed with Dian Hong tea (Yunnan black tea) . Yunnan Dianhong Group Co., Ltd was founded on Mar. 8, 1939. It was originally named as Shunning Experimental Tea Factory and then renamed as Fengqing Tea Factory when the county’s name changed from Shunning into Fengqing in 1954. Dianhong Congou is designated by the States council as gift tea for states foreign affairs. Nowadays Dianhong has existed 70 years as the biggest private share-holding tea manufacture in China, to celebrate its 70th anniversary, the group produced high quality golden cake. As we can see the cake is pressed with tender golden-colored tips. It smells strongly of chocolate and malt. Once infused to a rich, honey-gold, the nose takes on caramel and vanilla notes. It is slightly sweet, spicy tea with its finish of burnt caramel. Very smooth, minimal astringency.

I like this a lot. The cake offers a nice mix of leaves and buds, and the leaves are pretty large, but impossible to tell of course if this is really from `ancient trees’.

The aroma profile is of a pretty classic, robust dianhong. Plenty of caramelly, sugarcany, smokyish sweet flavor, and full malty body. Creamy texture and little astringency, although the peppery aftertaste gives it some nice `bite’. Very enjoyable and satisfying. I think it is very affordable as well.
