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.
