Dianhong Farms, Fengqing, Yunnan, China

This red tea is a high-grown offering from Fengqing District, Yunnan. Situated on the high rural mountain sides at above 3000m elevation, the Dianhong Farms specialise in making this fully-oxidised tea. Rich, malty flavour with notes of spice, orange and chocolate, this is a complex and dynamic beverage. On a stronger steep, it makes for a bright, punchy wake-up cup.

The farms here as with much of rural China throughout Yunnan organize their tea production in co-operatives and share drying, rolling and oxidising facilities. This makes their single origin offerings consistent across the several Dianhong Farms.
