When choosing a high-quality Dian Hong black tea, it is important to look at how much of the golden-tip is in the leaves. The more golden color, the higher the grade usually is. This Dian Hong black tea is from a larger leaf variety, manually hand-picked and processed using the traditional techniques of Mr. Zhou's family farm in Yunnan. You can immediately notice the caramel, sweet potato-like aroma when you brew this tea. The feeling in your mouth is very smooth, complex and balanced. Hints of a spice match well with the robust and malty undertone of the tea. Definitely one of the best Chinese black teas we have in our black tea collection.

Winter squash soup with caramel cream for dessert.

Enjoyed an afternoon session with Yannan Golden Tip Dian Hong. Gaiwan brewed with slightly lower temps as I am at a higher altitude. Steep temps went from 180F down to 150F with steep times varying from 45 seconds on first steep, down to 20 seconds, then 10 sec adds each additional steep. Initial aroma of hot soup wafted up a slight bergamot that went directly to warm winter squash with taste of winter squash and sweet potatoes whipped with creamy butter, perhaps with just a sprinkle of cinnamon followed by caramel. Taste held solid into 5th steep when it transitioned to a smooth, creamy caramel. No bitterness, very very light astringent drying at the 6th steep. 10 steeps and the sweet squash and caramel flavors were balanced. Lovely tea for an afternoon break or to steep and sip at your desk, or perhaps while crafting away on a Saturday. Clean, welcoming, sweet, creamy, straightforward tea. So glad I already have placed another order for more.

Nice tea

This tea was most whole leaves and nice golden color. Flavor was full and typical for this black tea. May be a little more peppery than some. I enjoyed it very much. For the dollar value a good buy. If one is interested in tasting this tea I would say try it you'll like it.
