Tea Review: Award Winning Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea - Golden Tip (Teavivre)

Award Winning Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea - Golden Tip
Type: Black
Origin: China, Yunnan Province, Fengqing
Product Description: 
The Global Tea Championship is an independent competition, judged by tea professional, to distinguish the highest quality & best tasting teas commercially available globally. We’re thrilled to announce that Teavivre’s Yun Nan Dian Hong Black Tea – Golden Tip was placed as a Silver Winner in Fall Hot Loose-Leaf Competition March 2018. Its rounded taste and balanced flavor ultimately won the judges’ love in the Yunnan category.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have notes of berries, oats, and aged wood.

The liquor is dark red with heady notes of warm berries and fresh baked dark brown bread in both aroma and taste accompanied by moderate astringency.

The flavor and aroma reminded me of delicious fresh-from-the-oven berry pie, a trait I most look forward to with a dianhong even though it leaves me with an incredible craving for dessert.  The tea was full-flavored throughout three infusions.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
