Award Winning "Red Tip" Yunnan Dian Hong Black Tea
—Sensei, how did you achieve for this tea to have such an exceptional taste? So sweet and soft, with notes of chocolate, – a young monk asked the wise tea master Lao Cha
—This wasn’t difficult. I just had to find an ecologically friendly place, far away from the dust and pollution of the cities. Where there is green as far as the eye can see. Then I had to cultivate the tea bushes at a height of 1800 meters. Harvest only the finest tea leaves — buds and golden tips. And finally, patiently process these leaves with the greatest care. Simple. – Lao Cha answered.
We are proud to carry this extraordinary tea which has won a Silver Medal at the Spring 2018 Global Tea Championship, where teas with exquisite taste and superb quality are identified by professionals in the field. The tea’s unmistakably balanced flavor and rounded taste are undeniably what makes it a favorite amongst many.
Yunnan Dian Hong grows high up in the Lida Ecological tea garden in Fengqing, Yunnan, at an elevation of 1800 meters. There, farms and greenery spread over hundreds of kilometers far away from any pollutants. The atmosphere is quiet, misty, and tranquil. This ensures that the tea trees can enjoy only the purest air and soil.
Fengqing is not only known for its perfect tea growing conditions but also for being one of the first birthplaces of tea. While sipping some of our Award Winning Yunnan Dian Hong Black Tea you are not only savoring a tea of superb quality but also consuming centuries of tea history and culture.
