This is an exquisite Yunnan, black with golden tips.  A customer favorite and a bestseller for us.  Use a heaped teaspoon for each cup to obtain the maximum flavor.  From Yunnan region in China and from some of the oldest tea trees in the world. Very tippy, very rich with a lot of depth and character. Sometimes called Golden Halo or Golden Yunnan.  A taste of chocolate lingers on your palate. We strongly recommend this tea. Certified Organic.

Tea Education

We've named this Dian Black from the Chinese Dian Hong which is a combination of Dian, an old version of the name Yunnan, and hong which is simply red and often used to describe black tea in China. It is grown in Yunnan province in China and easily one of our bestsellers. This area is prized for ancient trees and forests. The tea is rich, earthy and robust. This grade has an abundance of gold tips thus indicating a mark of high quality. The cup has a lingering chocolate note. For those who appreciate fine Assams, Dian Black is a recommendation. Good by itself or with a dash of milk.
