Single Bud Dian Hong Black Tea
Single Bud #1
Single Bud #2
Single Bud dian hong black tea is made from delicate young tea buds which are covered in fine hairs and the dried tea leaves appear bright orange in colour. This is because of the rich antioxidants and low level of chlorophyll in the young tea buds. The tea liquor is bright red in colour with a strong aroma, a sweet taste and dark chocolate notes. The flavour reminds of chocolate dipped fruit, sweet bean paste and caramel, which is well balanced with the malty flavour of a red tea and lingering aftertaste reminiscent of liquorice.
This pure bud black tea is sweet and malty with honey taste and aroma. It is neither astringent nor bitter, and can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style.
Hand-plucked tea buds that turn a beautiful golden color instead of black due to the rich antioxidants and low level of chlorophyll in the early spring tea buds. This tea’s infusion is velvety, full, and sweet with a cocoa powder aroma even when brewed cold. The many-layered buds take great skill to process into black tea.
This Black Tea, or Red Tea in China, has a luscious, dark chocolate dipped fruit note that is delightfully sweet with a caramel and sweet bean paste taste which is well balanced with the malty flavour of a Black or Red Tea. There is a lingering aftertaste reminiscent of liquorice. The tea liquid is bright red in colour with a strong aroma matching the taste.
The exclusive use of single young tea buds to make Jinya (Yunnan Golden Buds) is highly unusual for a black tea. Because of this, it possesses a very rich aroma that resembles cacao. The flavor is smooth with a delicate sweetness that covers the entire palate. Golden Buds is truly a remarkable tea.
