Fengqing Dian Hong


Fengqing Dian Hong is a Yunnan Hong Cha or Black tea from Fengqing County in Lincang Prefecture, a region well known for its black tea production and Pu'er. The aroma of the long wiry leaves smells of malt and dried stone fruit; its aroma is quite rich. The taste is a blend of chocolate, roses, dried cherries and long lingering aftertaste of plums to finish it off. This tea is a wonderful choice for either a relaxing afternoon tea or an early morning wake up, no matter how or when you prepare this tea, it is immensely enjoyable.
