Hong Songzhen, a kind of Yunnan black tea (Dian Hong for short), is made from one bud with one leaf of the Yunnan large-leaf “Dayezhong” spring tea. The reason why we don’t use black tea is that black tea may easily get over fermented, so that may affect its sound quality. This is a Dian Hong tea, but it is slightly different from the Fengqing Dian Hong variety. For instance, the tea buds should be very tender, well-stretched, and are good at aroma fusion. After brewing, the tea liquid is particularly evident with a naturally sweet taste, while the Dian Hong full-leaf has a more delicious, more caramel-like flavor. The most prominent part of this tea is its pure, clean taste, like sweet spring water from the mountains. There Is a relatively light black tea, suitable for both beginners who want an accessible introduction to Dian Hong as well as veteran tea-drinkers to enjoy a softer variety.
