Yunnan Black

Chen Hong Cha

  • Rank Courageous Goat

    I liked this one, had a round taste to it and not too bitter.

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    Nice everyday tea. Nice a light smooth feel in the mouth. It has a slight acidic/bitter taste with a good dry finish. After each mouthful I have a slight fruit/floral aroma.

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    Dark sweetness, very good.

Yunnan Province is home of  some of the finest Black teas in the world (actually some of the finest of many types of tea). It is the spiritual mother province of tea and is one of our favourite partsof the world for tea hunting.

This tea is a great introduction to one of the more bold Chinese Black teas made from the Assamica variety (as opposed to the more delicate Sinensis Black teas from Fujian).

We think that Yunnan Black is a great benchmark for judging a high quality but affordable Chinese Assamica for everyday drinking.
