2021 "Intergalactic" Dian Hong Black Tea Blend 200g Cake :: Seattle Inventory
This black tea is full of golden buds and develops an impressive body. The cacao-like tanginess fades into a mellow woodsy aftertaste reminiscent of brandy and expensive pipe tobacco.
There is an invigorating dry fruit aroma in this tea that is laced with notes of dark chocolate.
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.
