Yingdehong tea (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: 英德; pinyin: Yīngdé hóngchá; pronounced [íŋ.tɤ̌ xʊ̌ŋ.ʈʂʰǎ]) is a black tea from Yingde, Guangdong province, China. First produced mechanically in 1959. 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.
