Black Fragrance


Black Fragrance is a "fresh tea" grown on a small tea farm about 60 kilometers from Fuzhou in Fujian Province. Made to local customs of teamaking using the prized Mei Zhan varietal, the leaves have been carefully crafted to a large and consistent size.  Using a light firing technique, the tea maker has created a black tea with an unusually sweet fragrance and complex flavor that grows in the mouth. Note the lingering finish and how it feels after drinking this rare offering.  Grown on an organic farm at an elevation of 1,100 meters, this tea well-exemplifies the elegance and light touch of the tea farmer.  The tea will provide a very satisfying cup most anytime and goes well with food.  Given the high elevation of the farm, the tea liquor is a clear reddish-brown and the taste complex with a growing finish.

  1. Stellar tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2015

    I received a sample of this tea in a recent order. I brewed it up and was knocked over by the tea. Malty, rich and fragrant. Not overly malty or rich. Extremely pleasing and satisfying cup. I believe this tea will become my house black tea. I quickly used up the sample, in two days! Anxiously awaiting my next order.

  2. Delicious! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2015

    What a wonderful tea. Extremely complex flavor and aroma, malty with a light sweetness like fine tobacco or leather, similar to Keemun Mao Feng, but without the mild smokiness and with much deeper flavor. Absolutely wonderful!
