Description

Its name means “roasted black tea”. It is grown in northern Guangxi, 1,200 metres above sea level in the region of Fengshan.

After being withered for ten hours, the leaves are rolled and oxidised. They are then roasted for 3 hours at 120°, 60° then 80° before being sorted.

This rare black tea unveils toasted and fruity notes with a finish boasting an intense cocoa aroma. It has a silky texture and a sweet flavour.
