Wild Black Tea Dian Hong from Teabook is a great tea. Whether you call it a Black Tea or a Red Tea it’s sure to impress. The sample I received from Teabook was perfectly portioned to fit in their tea tumbler that I also received in the box they sent me but the Wild Black Tea Dian Hong from Teabook itself also fit nicely into my strainer/steeper to have a regular cuppa as-is, too!
Wild Black Tea Dian Hong from Teabook is of Lincang, Yunnan Province, China. Suggested water steeping temperature was 195 degrees and the loose leaf tea is an impressive, clean black tea (or as they state on the package Red Tea). Here in the US we tend to call it a Black Tea but many other countries categorize it as a Red Tea.
It has a nice medium strength black tea base that ends a bit sweeter on the end sip. It also makes a great iced tea. I was able to get multiple infusions out of it, too! Wild Black Tea Dian Hong from Teabook is hardy and hefty and stands up to many of my black tea favorites! Two thumbs up!
