    Recommends this tea

Sometimes you want the richness of a black tea with the lightness of a white and when that craving hits there is only one place to go - Dianhong tea.

Dianhong is a type of black tea made predominantly with the buds of the Assamica tea varieties in Yunnan province. They produce, light, malty and smooth black teas with warm and sweet aromas.

This Dianhong comes from Fengqing which I think produces some of the best quality Dianhong in Yunnan province. This tea is soft and velvety with fabulous warm, malty baked notes and a cooling menthol finish. It hits the spot and we think it should be in everyone's collection.
