2014 Hunan Hei Cha Tian Jian Gong Fu

Hunan Hei Cha Tian Jian is a fermented tea (dark tea) made in An Hua area of Hunan. This particular tea is a blend of 3 different tian jian teas with different levels of oxidation. The tea is hand roasted over a pine wood fire and then wilted. Before the tea is completely dried it is pressed by hand into small baskets. This low level of compression allows for slow drying and further fermentation. The fermentation is lighter than shu puerh and produces a tea that is somewhat similar to both oolong tea and aged raw puehr, but unique in its own way. The taste is complex and full in the mouth with hints of tobacco, molasses and lots of umami with a floral touch. This tea truly evolves over subsequent steepings making it perfect for gong fu style brewing.
