About Yunnan Golden Tips Tea (Da Jin Ya)

This Premium Dian Hong Black Tea tastes richer and more delicate than standard Dian Hong Black Tea. It tastes very mellow combined with a hit of honey with sweet floral flavor. It has creamy, smooth and buttery mouthfeel.

It is produced in Linyi, Baoshan, Fengqing, Xishuangbanna, Dehong and other areas in the south and southwest of Yunnan province. This subtropical region is one of rolling hills with an average elevation of over 1,000 meters. The average annual temperature is around 18-22°C, with a very large temperature difference between day and night. The annual precipitation is 1,200-1,700mm. In sunny periods there is often fog in the morning and during the night.

There is dense forest and the soil is fertile, with fallen leaves and grass decaying to form a deep humus layer. These conditions result in tea trees with strong buds and fat leaves covered with rich white fuzz. Even the fifth or sixth leaves on the branch are very delicate and juicy and contain rich polyphenolic compounds and alkaloids.

Our Premium Dian Hong was produced in the spring of 2019.

Brewing Guide

3.5 teaspoon(s)

90-95°C (125ml)

1-2 mins


7 tsp

90-95°C (250ml)

1-2 mins


14 tsp

90-95°C (500ml)

1-2 mins


When using a Gaiwan (about 125ml) Gongfu style, infuse 3.5 teaspoons Dian Hong with hot water (90-95℃) for around 8-15 seconds for the first brew, extending the infusion time by 3-5 seconds for the following brews. Do not use boiling water because it will destroy the vitamin C and other beneficial contents of the leaves. It will also accelerate the precipitation of phenolic substances such as caffeine and tea polyphenols, which will make the tea taste sour and bitter.

    Such a sweet, lovely tasting tea. Its aroma of honey is so delicious, it evolves with every steep and the flavour brings notes of treacle and honeysuckle with a light to medium texture. Will definitely reorder.

    A beautiful looking tea with a taste to match. Sweet but not watery, with plenty of body. I’ll be ordering more.

    This tea had just the right amount of sweetness for me – not too much. A very pleasant tea to drink mid-morning or early evening.

    This is an excellent tea. The second and third brews are just as good as the first. Yunnan Golden Tips is my preferred tea for all occasions.

    I can absolutely see why the tribes have kept up the tradition of drinking this tea for over years. If I was to live this long, I think I’d keep it up too. It’s a real health encouraging tea, with a rich flavour.
