Fujian Black

High-fired to winey, naturally sweet notes..

This local-style black offers a distinctive & aromatic flavor! High-fired, this cultivar cups to lightly sweet flavors reminiscent of a Keemun-style tea. 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 accentuated its winey notes.

Lot Notes. It offers an unusual black tea experience due to the fact it is not a tea cultivated for export and is consumed primarily in the local area of Fuzhou. Tea was harvested in April 2020 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. A local style Fujianese black rarely exported. It is small farm produced from a local cultivar. 

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 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.
