This type of tea is also known as aged tea. It is a low-oxygen ripening process, which gives the leaves their strong flavor and dark color. China's Yunnan province is the home of this tradition.
This particular tea grows in Yunnan Province at an altitude of 1350 m. It was harvested in 2016 from tea bushes that were on average 30 years old. We are so happy to finally offer an organic tea cake.
When you brew, you pop off a piece and brew. You can brew as "regular tea", about 2 grams per cup. Or you can try "gong-fu" brewing, which produces a fairly light tea:
Brew in 95-100 degree water, about 7 grams of tea leaves, and 2 deciliters of water. You can pour off the first batch (for a few seconds) to wash the tea leaves. Then brew several rounds on the same leaf, as long as the leaves give flavor. The time can gradually decrease and then increase slightly.
