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.
