Large Red Leaves

Dian Hong Da Ye is one of the rarest sorts of Chinese red teas from Yunnan Province, the cradle of the ancient Chinese tea culture. The three Great Imperial Tea Trees were found in the virginal forests of this province. Here a legend of the Camellia Empress takes its roots, of an Empress who reached 6 meters in statue. The tea’s other name is Chinese Camellia. During the tea’s processing young succulent flushes plucked from the trees of a large-leaved variety undergo withering, rolling, fermentation and drying. The Large Red Leaves tea is distinguished for its original flavor. Golden hues of its miniature buds, covered with orange hairs are complemented by the dark-browns of its rather large leaves. A play of amber tints in its clear infusion is fragrant of honey and features a very original mild taste with a touch of astringency and a spicy note.
