Black tea from Yunnan is among the most robust but refined black teas produced in the whole world! Typically Yunnan Black teas are made from Assamica or Assamica hybrid. Since the end of the Second World War Yunnan Black teas have steadily increased in popularity and in the last 20 years a series of interesting hybrids were developed that greatly enhanced both the diversity and taste of the tea! Black teas vary according to their hybrid, harvest season, pick style, and processing! 

Taste a flight of teas from the Famous Tea Region of Lincang! Experience a curated selection of some of our Lincang Black Teas and develop an appreciation for the distinct aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of this amazing region.

The term "Dian Hong" 滇红 loosely refers to teas from Yunnan.  However the original region where Yunnan Black tea was produced is Lincang, and specifically the Feng Qing area of Yunnan.  So, Dian Hong originally referred only to black tea from Lincang!
