Another great find from Yunnan. Gongfu black tea is a style of black tea making that originated in northern Fujian Province. Â With the recent popularity of black tea throughout China, this processing method has spread to most tea producing provinces. The word gongfu translates to doing something "with skill". Â Gongfu black tea processing involves a lengthy withering and oxidation process designed to bring out the most in the leaf. This tea does not disappoint. Medium bodied with notes of honey, rose and malt. Â A great lasting finish. This tea is also fairly forgiving when being brewed, so it can be pushed.
Origin: Danjia Zhai, Cangyuan County, Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China
