Tea Time at Delights of the Heart.
Recently I have been drinking Dian Hong from Yunnan Province of China,
purchased at New Century Tea Gallery in Seattle.
I always considered Dian Hong and it's close relative, Yunnan Gold, to be a black tea.
They are both darker than an oolong or green tea and both a lovely smokiness to them.
Reading several articles recently they say that they are a red tea,
well this tea girl learns something new.
Now I know an orange pekoe is black and most often I don't find it as entertaining.
When I find someone that wants to change from coffee to tea I try to suggest
a hefty black tea for changing and they often like a nice puehr.
So when you select a black tea, what do you drink?
Is it truly black?
Since we have a festival celebration this week in Halloween,
what tea would best fit with the occasion?
Is red the new black?
