    Wild Arbor Dian Hong Loose Black Tea

    Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

    Wild Arbor Dian Hong is a variety of black teas from Yunnan Province, made from tea leaves of a wild local hybrid assamica varietal grown in the high altitude of Jing Mai Mountain, Yunnan Province. Yunnan Province is the southwest frontier of China that borders with Vietnam, Laos, Burma and Tibet and is known as the birthplace of tea with some wild ancient tea trees claimed to be more than 1000 years old. Misty mountains and winding rivers in the region certainly provide an ideal habitat for tea bushes. 

    Dian Hong black tea is typically distinguished with its mellow and well-rounded liquor that offers a unique concoction of malty, chocolaty, earthy and gamy flavours with delicate astringency. Our Wild Arbor Dian Hong offers a predominantly chocolaty, malty liquor with a velvety mouthfeel, exhibiting a great balance between sweetness, acidity and delicate astringency.  

    A perfect cup of warming black tea that will comfort your soul and body in chilly days. 

    Black tea is known to be just as beneficial as green tea for our health and well-being. A recent study indicates several health benefits of black tea by demonstrating that flavonoids found in black tea boost the immune system to prevent flu and other viral infection and encourage the growth of healthy microorganism in the liver to boost energy metabolism and weight loss.

    A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go.

If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
