Anhua Fu Brick - Anhua Fuzhuan - 安化茯砖

Description

In China this Tea belongs to the category of hei cha (黑茶)o Black Tea, but in order to avoid confusions with the wrongly used word “Black” to call Red Teas, we better use the word Dark to refer to this Tea Category.

Dark Teas have been kept in the shades for a long time, not even inside the chinese market they are too popular, which is sad as good Dark Teas are very healthy, sweet and easy to enjoy.  Unfortunately during the production of Dark Teas the use of pesticides and other chemicals is frequent which makes them less sought after, and makes the finding of clean dark teas a harder task.

Produced with more mature leaves and stems, this Dark tea’s unique feature is the Jinhua fungus “金花”, Aspergillus  – ‘golden flowers’, little golden specks that develop inside the brick, that act as natural probiotics.

 

Tasting Notes:

Smooth, sweet and soothing, less earthy than Shou Puer, with notes reminiscent of dry forest leaves

 

 

Drinking Tips:

  • – Some people like to boil this Tea to give the leaves a second life after the infusions run bland.
  • – Keep it handy for those heavy meals or hangovers, great to help your gut cope with those abuses.
  • – Pair with almost anything.
  • – Ages very well, make sure to store it well.

 


Notes for Tea Nerds:

* All of our product pictures for the Tea soup features the middle infusion combined. (if the tea can be infused 8 times, then we combine 4th-5th to take the picture)

* All of our product pictures featured a bit more quantity of tea leaves infused, that’s because we have heavier palate and we are drinking the teas as we take the pictures 😉

* The number of infusions  for each product consider infusions with easily recognized taste, we do not count infusions that have its taste already fading away; said this each tea can be infused more times if desired. Also many of our teas can be boiled after being infused.
