Chinese Red Tea is a fully-oxidised tea.

Chinese Red tea can be produced in all tea areas; and each tea area’s red tea will have its own characteristics including its shape, smell, taste and its health benefits. And most of “area red tea” can be named as “Gong Fu” red tea.

“Dian” is the brief name of Yunnan Province and “Hong” means red in Chinese. so it is also as know as “Yunnan Black/Red” in English. It is one of my best sells in my shop. It helps to strengthen the stomach and to relax in winter time. It is regarded as the lady’s  favorite tea.

DianHong is one of the 5 famous Gong Fu red teas from the Yunnan Province.

Old Tree Red is a special DianHong which uses the leaves picked from trees that are hundreds of year old, hence the name. The taste is sharp, mellow and deep. Familiar drinkers can taste the tree and sometimes even the strong energy from the powerful old tea tree.

This DianHong is made in FengQing area by experience red tea maker from Yunnan Dianhong Group Co., Ltd.
