Fujian Black

High fire, lightly sweet flavor.

A local style Fujianese black rarely exported. A high-fire black offering a distinctive, lightly sweet flavor. Leaves are long, thin and wiry. The telling characteristic of this tea from other Fujian Congous is in the leaf size and the firing which has elevated the aroma of the tea and acentuated its winey notes.

Lot Notes
It offers an unusual black tea experience given its taste profile. It is a refreshing cup. The leaves steep to a crisp, bright-red color. The pricing is also attractive in today's high-demand black tea market. It is a good everyday black, hydrating and refreshing.

Tea Facts
Grown near Fuzhou along the coast of Fujian Province. It is small farm produced from a local varietal. The taste is crafted to local preference. It is not a tea that is typically exported.

Tasting Notes
The aroma is pleasant, winey and noticeably high-fire. Taste is naturally sweet, light and clean.

Brewing Suggestions
Use a rounded teaspoon (3-4 grams) of leaf for 8-12 ounces of water at a temperature of 195-205 degrees F. Steep for 2-3 minutes and taste. At 2 minutes there is nice light note to the tea. It builds body with more time.

    A Smooth Tea

    Posted by Susie Jensen on 21st Mar 2019

    Quality black tea is my passion. I am very pleased with this tea and would order it again. I enjoy the fragrance of the leaves as they steep. Tastes good plain or with a little sugar and milk. I’ve been drinking a cup every morning.
