Origin: Fengqing, Yunnan, China
Ingredients: A mix orange pekoe colored buds with black leaves
Taste: A rich, complex but smooth and fresh taste

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.
