A hand-picked, traditionally processed black tea from the "cradle of tea"...

Together with Fujian, Yunnan is the main cultivation area for Chinese black teas. Yunnan black teas have golden tips similar to Assam teas, but the taste is softer and often reminiscent of caramel and honey. Yunnan is generally considered the cradle of tea, because from here the tea plant has spread as far as India and Laos in the form of tall, wild trees.

Our Edmon's Tea No. 2149 China Dian Hong Spring Organic is harvested in spring from February to April. The Dian Hong tea garden is located at 1,100 m above sea level and has a total cultivation area of around 134 hectares. More than 150 tea farmers live and work here, with the constant aim of providing customers with an excellent cup of organic tea.

Which tea cultivars were used for the tea?

Specifically, the tea cultivars Yunkang 10# and Snowbud 100# (from the large-leaved Yunnan tea plant) were used, which are distinguished by their characteristic pointed shape, floral aroma and honey-like taste and belong to the genus Camellia sinensis var. assamica.

What makes this tea so special?

What makes this tea so special is the hand-picking and the subsequent traditional Dian Hong black tea processing with long withering time and multi-stage, slow and gentle rolling. This results in the high quality and the consistent, balanced taste. On the other hand, the plucking period should also be mentioned, as less black tea is processed in spring. Black spring teas are lighter and more digestible, but have a very aromatic cup. Dian Hong, is a typical traditional black tea grown and harvested only in the Yunnan growing region. It is characterised by its golden leaf tips and floral aroma, tasting of honey, caramel and sweet potato.
