Commercial Description

A great organic black with a distinctive taste. This tea is also known as ‘congou’ or gongfu tea. This black tea is processed by withering, rolling, oxidizing, and de-enzymizing (firing). The skilled production produces a full flavored leaf. When a lot of leaves are used, many subtle flavors of distant flowers and smokiness appear. The top notes are complex and satisfying.

Brewing Instructions: (from Generation Tea)

The leaves infuse quickly in full boiling water. Steep for about two minutes, less if brewed gongfu style. Try about one full tablespoon for a powerful dark cup. Infuse two times for two minutes each and then use new leaves.

This tea has not yet been given any ratings or reviews.
