    Lady Zhu Rong was a legendary dagger-wielding warrior-queen of Yunnan descended from a god of fire. The toasty-savory spice and sweet, creamy boxy of this Yunnan black tea evoke the kingdom of Dian, an independent state before it was conquered by China and renamed Yunnan. Dian Hong is a relatively new kind of tea introduced in the 80's that has recently taken China by storm for its full body and depth of flavor that comes from its signature downy buds. While budset black teas from Fujian tend to be very crisp, Yunnan golden bud harvests like this Zhu Rong are much bigger and creamier.


  • 'Pay more attention to a tea’s specific effect on your body than to the stated caffeine content. A tea might be very high in caffeine, but also high in EGCG and L-theanine, which in the end may contribute to a more calming effect than a stimulant effect. Predicting the exact effect a tea is going to have becomes more complex task than measuring caffeine.'
