Yunnan

An extravagant China Yunnan tea (also called dian hong tea). Classified as a golden flowery orange pekoe (GFOP) it has an exquisite, mildly earthy, sweet taste and a brassy orange colour.

This tea is named after the Chinese province of Yunnan. It is distinguished from other Chinese black teas by the characteristic rich earth tones in the flavour. The unique soils of the tea growing areas of Yunnan are thought to be responsible for this fascinating flavour.
