Dian hong (pictured), an earthy gourmet tea, is harvested in the renowned Chinese province of Yunnan. In China this tea is hong cha, red tea. After infusing dian hong a few times, however, its russet color turns darker. For this reason, westerners named it black tea. This tea offers many flavor possibilities according to how it is made. Its aroma tends to be floral and fruity with a roasted sweet potato flavor and a subtle maltiness. Compared to xiaozhong, dian hong’s flavor is more down to earth, brings you deep into the forest, and has a truthful bouquet.
Xiaozhong is popular in South Asia and an easy introduction to Chinese tea by its familiarity to the western palate. Its sweet and floral aroma attracts new tea drinkers. Harvested in early spring in Fujian Province in China, this brand of tea is wood smoked; yet it has a sweet demeanor. As you appreciate its taste, its golden hues will charm you.

Green Oolong tea is grown in Taiwan and in Yunnan Province, China. Minimal oxidation allows the leaves of this tea to keep their original green color. For this reason, the tea is imbued with a grassy freshness that hinges on astringency. Its range of tastes, from sweet to a light toast, is determined by its level of oxidation. A light flowery and fruity aroma enhances its drinking pleasure. Rich in antioxidants, green Oolong tea can expel nicotine from the lungs, detox the liver, and speed digestion, which can slow weight gain.

About half a century ago, a process was developed to accelerate aging in Pu-erh tea. The result was ripe Pu-erh, (Shu), which resembles raw Pu-erh in it's dark brown, sweet and earthy flavor that has aged and fermented for decades. However, this process (wo dui) only takes 60 to 70 days. The down side is that ripe Pu-erh is less collectible, although it tends to be less expensive as well.
Sheng (raw) Pu-erh tea (pictured) comes from the mountainous forests of Yunnan Province in western China. Unlike many teas, it improves with age and is therefore collectible. It can be delicious and light when young, but ripens and transforms in flavor to be earthy and dark, more like the ripe Pu-erh described above. Many people consider Pu-erh to be highly beneficial for our health.

Popular Silver Needle and White Peonie teas are harvested in both Fuding, Fujian Province, and Jing Gu, Yunnan Province, in China.
