DianHong or Yunnan Gold is a great value premium black tea. A large leaf tea, our 2015 Dian Hong has a high proportion of golden tips. Formed in to elegant 'needles', this tea not only looks great, it produces a deep, rich amber-red coloured tea liquor with distinct aroma.

Our 2013 Dian Hong was a 2014 UK Great Taste Award winner, receiving two gold stars from the independent judges. The judges commented, "Black leaf producing a clean liquor of interesting character: slightly smokey, a touch nutty, creamy yet with a pronounced astringency".


The 'Dian' in Dian Hong Cha 滇红茶, is an alternative character in Chinese to imply the region of YunNan 云南, a southern province at the foothills of the Himalayas. Known by many outside of China as YunNan Gold due to the golden tips.

This stunning tea produces a wide range flavours that are carefully balanced for a real taste sensation. Notes include pepper, malt, coca which finish with an almost sweet almond oil.

Excellent choice for those who love Assam's and for those want a full bodied black tea, but are looking for a complex tea with plenty of flavour. Very easy to prepare whatever you chosen method. Can be infused 6 times which is excellent for a black tea.

Bold black tea...

This tea has a nice complex flavour with a smell of raw rolling tobacco, slight caramel and chocolate. The lightly smokey smell comes through in the taste along with a strong creamy malted flavour
