Chinese Black Tea


Yunnan Gold or Yunnan Sunrise

Our Yunnan Gold comes from the Fengqing region of Yunnan province in China, a mountainous region of southwestern China close to the border with Myanmar (Burma). Often referred to as Dianhong Tea, Dian Hong Tea, or even Yunnan Red Tea, this tea style is a relatively recent innovation developed in the 1900's as opposed to other Chinese teas developed hundreds or thousands of years ago. Our Dian Hong Tea has been farmed under biodynamic organic conditions and was plucked during the spring.

Steeping Notes

Yunnan Sunrise or Yunnan Gold can be steeped as many as four or five times if desired. The ideal method for steeping is to use boiling water in a pre-warmed mug, gaiwan, or glass. Steep for 30 seconds initially and a bit longer each subsequent steeping.

  1. Beautiful way to start the day 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Mar 2015

    Yunan Sunrise is a delicious, golden black tea - a perfect breakfast tea, as well as a tea for tea time. It is flavorful without being too bold. I am so glad I found it.


  2. This is my new favorite 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2014

    I drink a lot only black teas. My favorites have a nice crisp and clean, flavorful taste. I was going to say this is my favorite Yunnan, but it's actually my favorite tea now-- funny because the only reason I even tried Dominion Tea was because my other seller ran out of the Vietnam Nam Lanh (former favorite). I'm so glad I did. Hope this review helped, but please don't clean out their stock on this tea or else I'll have to find yet another seller.
