Tea Story

An incredible Grade A, Dian Hong black tea that once drunk may never be forgotten!
Carefully harvested in the famously mountainous region of Yunnan, China and presenting the most beautifully shaped, large leaves, this infusion offers a stunning bright-red liquor which is subtly sweet and fresh.
Imparting a flavour that is strong enough for the addition of a little milk or sugar, it is also a joy to take on it’s own. A decadent tea that offers the perfect afternoon cup.

Liquid chocolate

This stuff has the rich complexity of a high cocoa content milk chocolate, when drunk with milk. It really shines through - possible the best tea I've had with milk. Obviously, milk is optional when the flavours are this good.

smooth taste

This is one of my favourite teas. It has a lovely smooth taste with no bitterness and although milk can be added, it tastes better without. Very prompt and well packaged delivery of order.

A Revelation
Thursday, 19 March 2015  |  Nicholas

I'm just just getting into Chinese Tea, having been a fan of whole leaf tea from Teapigs for a while. I took a punt on the Yunnan Dian Hong and am blown away by it. The malty richness beats any Assam. I was not expecting the complexity and caramel notes- simply a joy.
