2021 "Big Red" Dian Hong Black Tea Blend 200g Cake :: Seattle Inventory

$ 34.99

This black tea has a full body that develops into flavors of dried fruits and barrel aged rum. The sweetness lingers with just a bit of smokiness.

The aroma is deep and sweet with a hint of cedar. 


Our passion is puerh tea but we can't ignore the amazing black tea offerings that come from Yunnan. Dian hong ( 滇红 ) is a special black tea that comes from Yunnan's large leaf varietal camellia sinensis assamica. The connection to puerh tea is undeniable. This tea was made from the exact same trees that get processed as puerh. This blend contains old tree material.

These cakes are loosely pressed at 200 grams. You can brew this tea gongfu style, grandpa style, or even boil it on the stove. Our favorite method is boiling a chunk on the stove for more than 10 minutes, straining off the leaves, then adding honey and milk for an incredible Hong Kong style milk tea that is very addictive.
