Golden Yunnan, also referred to as Dian Hong Cha is a bright, reddish, full-bodied tea from the famous Yunnan province.

The Chinese name “Dian Hong Cha” is an abbreviation for teas from the province of Yunnan. “Hong” meaning red and “cha” meaning tea. What we in the west conventionally call “black tea” is referred to as “red tea” in China and Japan, because of its liquor that brews almost Mahogany-red.

Golden Yunnan is characterized by larger mature leaves, tightly twisted, mixed with golden buds, also referred to as “golden tips”. These tips result in a slight sweetness in the tea, with hints of cocoa and caramel.

The overall taste is a soft, rounded cup with pleasant sweetness and slightly smoky notes. Suited for both heavy and lighter dishes. Excellent with mature cheese, and very good with fine milk chocolate. Tastes like a lighter version of Pu Erh tea.

Serving tips

For this tea we suggest trying the Western-style of brewing. The idea behind it is to use much less leaf and much more water while brewing-times are much longer to extract as much of the flavor as possible at once.
