Red Dragon Black Tea

软枝红茶

The Origin Story

Red Dragon is a unique and exceptional tea, processed by masters as a black tea using a tea cultivar traditionally used for oolong tea. This gives the tea a syrupy, rich texture, fruity aroma and an enticing flavour of dark berries, ginger, caramel and chocolate. Find out about sourcing our Red Dragon on our blog

China - Yunnan

Yunnan is the true home of puerh tea and is also known for rich black teas

This tea was picked from the lush slopes of Ximeng Tea Garden at 1500m, near Pu'er, in the far south of Yunnan province, close to the border with Laos.

    What a great find. The most flavoursome ever
    Do not know the correct trems of the real tea world. I have been drinking quality teas for years and this is the one that suits me the best. It is a slightly sweet taste but lots of different flavours. Yet it has enougth earth to make it a black.
