This tea is made from the big leaf varietal of the Yunnan tea plant that is used to make Pu-Er. It differs in process from pu-er and most process of black tea in that it is never cooked. Instead the fresh leaves are rolled and massaged, breaking the cell walls and releasing the enzyme polyphenol oxidase which catalyzes the oxidation of the leaves. The tea leaves are massaged between one and 3 times over the course of the day and left in the shade to rest inbetween.by nightfall the green leaves have turned brick red. The oxidation gives the tea its refreshingly light astringency and its deep, sweet woody character. This 10-year-aged version of our classic sun-dried Yunnan black has a deep, dark character due to its age with a mossy flavor and a pronounced fruity Hui Gan, or aftertaste.
