Back for 2018, this Dianhong black tea lives up to its name, with a sugar-like sweetness from the first sip. This tea is also very resilient to brewing parameters, making it a solid daily drinker that doesn’t sacrifice on quality.

Made from mixed picking (old and young tree) Jingmai material, this tea was comes from a family that has been producing black tea for many years and demonstrates the results of quality processing.

Please note that larger sizes (100-250g) do not include a tin, but will be packed inside air tubes to prevent breakage.

    This is a new favorite for me. The sweetness mixed with the earthy black tea flavor is very satisfying. It is quite affordable, and the tin it comes with is an added bonus. This is a tea I definitely want to stock up on and keep around!

    So satisfying and cozy! It is incredible; the dry leaves measure 2 inches each! Nicely twisted material paired with hairy/coppery buds. After the first rinse, I noticed the smell of a freshly out of the over raisinbread. Yummy candied dry raisins!. Medium texture. Tongue coating. The 2018 version is pretty different from 2017 ; it’s better!

    Solid daily drinker is right! I am not a fan of black tea but Sugar Glider might make me a convert! Sweet and bright, this tea stands up to repeated brewings and doesn’t seem to be drastically affected by temperature or steep time (though there’s definitely a sweet spot).

    The tin I received was a bit dented, but I am glad to have it as it makes storing this tea easier! Plus the sticker is too cute. When I share, people are always delighted by the design!
