Yunnan is sometimes called Dianhong, which means Yunnan Black Tea. The brew is a bright red with a vivid robustness and sweet flavour, which can be attributed to Lychee and Rose used in the fermenting process. The tea can be used for multiple infusions.

Yunnan is one of the most beautiful provinces in China. It covers 152,000 square miles, has a population 45.7million and its capital is Kunming. Yunnan borders Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar (Burma).

Yunnan is viewed by many Chinese people as being the garden of China and due to its geographical location has the largest diversity of plant life in China. It is possible to find 60% of the plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine in Yunnan.

Yunnan is split into 16 prefectures, 129 counties and 1565 townships. Some of these townships are very well known in the world of tea, for instance Pu’Er. Yunnan province produces many types of tea; white, green, fermented and black.

Yunnan is often called Dianhong, which translated means 'dian' (Yunnan) and 'hong' (red tea); the Chinese refer to black tea as red tea due to the reddish colour of the liquor.
