One could say that China is the land where tea was born. It’s no surprise, that the tea traditions in China are probably the oldest in the world. The provinces of so called “Middle Kingdom” produce marvelous black teas – you’ll find that these are especially mild – along with oolong and jasmine teas. The extraordinary diversity and quality of Chinese teas is overwhelming. 

This particular one is harvested at the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau. At the oldest tea-growing area this tea is picked during the best harvest time (2nd flush). Only buds and the finest leaves are used for this tea.

Diang Hong – Golden Rain - The main difference between Diang Hong and other Chinese black teas is the amount of fine leaf buds, or "golden tips" present. Fermented with lychee, rose and longan, Diang Hong teas produces a brew that is brassy golden orange in colour with a sweet, gentle aroma and no astringency.

A beautiful tea

A lovely, non-astringent brew with nutty overtones. One teaspoonful of leaves can make a litre or more of tea if you keep adding hot water. As more water is added, the character of the tea changes as the leaves steep and you really need to have about six successive cups to taste the full range of complex flavours. Definitely high on my list of teas to buy again.
