Our Yunnan Gold is the highest grade of Dian Hong tea from Yunnan. Different from other Dian Hong teas, this version contains lots of golden tips, brewing a golden orange cup with raw honey flavour. An excellent alternative to the Keemun of Anhui and Lapsang Souchong of Fujian with a highly distinctive taste.

History

Though Yunnan is the birthplace of tea with thousands of years of history in pu erh tea production, the very first black tea from this region dates back less than 100 years ago. Black wasn’t produced until 1939 when the first Dian Hong tea was successfully processed in Fengqing.

Health Benefits

  • Diuretic effect: the combination of caffeine and other substances in this tea get rid of toxics and decrease excessive amount of salt. The latter is often related to the hyper tension. When consumed in moderation, it could also helps against heart diseases.
  • Anti-inflammatory effect: polyphenols in black tea can reduce inflammation and infection. The leaves in a tippy golden black tea like Yunnan Gold will even contain more polyphenols. This is why the leaves are also used in some region in China to coat wounds. In addition, it’s often consumed in situations of food poisoning.
  • Detoxification effect: tea polyphenols also at the same time can absorb and get rid of heavy metals and alkaloids found in modern food. Eliminating fatigue: caffeine in black tea has a longer-term effect (though less intense) and is therefore more effective in reducing tiredness and improving focus. It also increases blood flow and thereby improve the digestion of food.
  • Tooth health: believe it or not, drinking Yunnan Gold can strengthen your teeth! The downside is that black tea can potentially stain your teeth, so you’ll have to brush at least twice a day to keep them white.

Seriously good Dian Hong

I'd never tried this particular type of Dian Hong before I got it from Teasenz, and I'm glad I had the chance to taste it. The leaves arrived quickly and were very well preserved. They were gold, furry, and unbroken. They smelled like fruit and wood and tasted almost floral. Excellent quality tea. Teasenz clearly holds itself to a golden standard when picking its teas (pun fully intended). Review by Sarabi N. Eventide (Posted on 8/17/2017)

Thanks for this high quality tea. I received your parcel in 12 days to Italy, which I find acceptable. The leaves look as great as the pictures and I love the honey aroma as described in your description, but I don't taste the 'peppery' taste that you mentioned. The latter doesn't take away my pleasure of drinking this tea. Ciao. Review by Allessandro (Posted on 9/10/2013)
