Classic 58 Dian Hong Black Tea - Sparrowtail Teas

Classic 58 Dian Hong Black Tea

Regular price $7.50 Sale

A well-rounded, multi-layered, exceedingly tasty black tea made from older tea bushes from a small-batch producer and processed in Yunnan's classic Dian Hong style.

Malty, fruity, and cocoa notes with a very slight astringency prevail in this tea, so named because the style was first perfected in 1958 by the Feng Qing tea factory, for which it won first prize at the prestigious London Tea Expo. 

Our Classic 58 tea does well when prepared in a Gongfu style or in a Western style. It's forgiving of longer steeps, and is best brewed at around 190-200f.
