Full Description

This black tea is a variety of Dian Hong, which comes from old tea trees, around 100 years old, in Meng Hai, Yun Nan, China. The rich chocolaty malty sweet mouthfeel is a typical characteristic of Yun Nan black tea, which is normally known as "Dian Hong". It's a great everyday and every occasion tea choice! It can be steeped multiple times without losing its sweetness by Gong Fu Cha style, otherwise a regular ceramic teapot is also an ideal teaware.

New Favourite Tea

A friend got this as a gift for me, and I think it's my new favourite tea. I've always been a fan of Yunnan black teas, and I had to ration this one so I wouldn't drink it all in a few days.

Phoenix Dan Cong Chocolatey Black

It's pretty odd when I give something that tastes this wonderful only 4 stars. The only possible reason is that the other two Phoenix Dan Cong teas that I have taste even better, and I don't think they will let me give them 6 stars. So don't hold back.....go ahead and buy this tea, too And the company's service is also five stars.


Serene Tea

Thank you for your feedback, and so glad you like the tea :) it's also one of my favorites!
