This tea is made from the leaves picked from ancient trees grown in the mountainous area of Fengqing, Yunnan, where the natural ecological environment provides ideal organic growing conditions for black tea cultivation.
The decomposing wild fruits and fallen leaves in this area give the tea trees, which have been growing in this soil for hundreds of years, with sufficient amount of nutrients. This is the reason why the tea leaves are so abundant in nutritious materials and can endure up to 8 infusions without producing any bitterness. This tea has a rich, smooth and mellow taste, followed by a lingering sensation of sweetness.
Characterized by its mellow, rich mouthfeel, the Yunnan Dian Hong Ancient Tree Black Tea, made with leaves from ancient tea trees of more than 800 years old, is surely worth its price.
