There are many more, and not necessarily only from Keemun and Yunnan.

There are Chinese Black teas, and Chinese Red teas, which are known as
'black tea' in the West. Which one are you talking of?

Chinese Black tea is also known as Hei Cha. I'm typing up a list of this
tea for friends, and if you are interested, e-mail me offline and I'll mail
it to you.

Hi Danny,

China is a huge export of tea. Keemun and Yunnan are a great place to
start. I'm referring to China's red teas, known as black tea here in
the West. Also considerable is Pu-Erh, usually out of Yunnan, another
fun China black.
