History

Though black teas have been crafted in China for probably close to 2,000 years, the history of this particular type of black tea – Dian Hong – only stretches back about 100 years. Dian Hong was first crafted in the 1930's a man by the name of Feng Shaoqiu. The first batches of Dian Hong were instantly popular, and were exported through Hong Kong to England, where it became very much sought after due to its high price and favour with the Queen at the time, who preferred it – somewhat scandalously – to the in-favour Indian teas commonly drunk at that time.

Now Dian Hong has become one of the most respected and widely known types of Chinese black tea. Held in extremely high regard in China, it is often presented by the government there as gifts to visiting dignitaries.
