Black Tea (DianHong MaoFeng)
Grown high in the mountains of the Yunnan Province, China. Dianhong Mao Feng is one of the most famous black teas in China delivering an intense taste that'll have you hooked, you'll wonder how you survived without it. Its a sweet and lively tea with notes of honey and liquorice enjoyed as either a hot or iced tea.
The plant has black leaves with bright golden tips. After harvesting these leaves, they are dried in the air. This is called fading or withering. As soon as the leaves are flexible enough to be processed, they are rolled by hand. The oxidation or fermentation process begins. After rolling, these leaves have to ferment for a few hours to get a good taste and colour. It's a forgiving tea, it can be steeped longer without leaving a bitter taste.
This black tea makes a great gift for newbies or the tea lover.
