Yingdehong tea (; pinyin: Yīngdé hóngchá) is a black tea from Yingde, Guangdong province, China. First produced mechanically in 1959. The tea tasted good and the best kind is "Ying Hong NO.9", and much of the tea is exported. Some quality varieties are produced, which often look like leaf Oolong.

The tea should have a cocoa-like aroma and like most Chinese black teas a sweet aftertaste.
