This is a type of Dark Tea or Hei Cha which has undergone microbial fermentation from several days to many years.

Dark Tea started producing in Anhua county, Hunan Province around 1524, when merchants spotted the big profit margin in trading Yaan Dark Tea (also known as Tibetan Dark Tea) to Tibet.  In order to cop the shortage of Yaan Dark Tea production, in1595,theMingEmperorgrantedtherightto produce and sell DarkteasfromAnhuadirectlytoNorth-westofChina, Mongolia and other parts of Central Asia.

Dark Tea in Anhua is made of matures leaves, which are essentially the leaves left on the tree to grow. The qualities of any tea are as much in the terroir, the soil, climate and type fo tree as the processing. Our Black Brick Dark Tea is made from the traditional local bushes, which are medium-leaf varietals (something between small-leaf bush ( C. sinensis var. sinensis) and the large-leaf varieties of Yunnan (C. s. var. assamica)for making Puer Teas.The tea garden is located in a natural forest environment with minimum management on Gao Ma Er Xi Mountain. Gao Ma Mountain is one of the most famous areas in Anhua to produce Dark Tea.  The climate is warm in winter and cool in summer, surrounded by clouds and mist, is especially suitable for the growth of tea.  The slate weathered and rotten rock soils are widely distributed in the area and the rich beneficial microbial mineral elements in this mountain have made the unique characters of tea. This effects the chemistry of the tea as well as subtler, energetic properties. You would notice that the tea has a very balance flavour with light earth and wood characters.

This brick has been aged since 2017, but you will still notice a very light aroma of smokiness, that is because of the processing which is one of the oldest methods of dark teas by drying the fermented tea leaves over a specially build stove called “seven-star stove” which contains seven holes inside the stove allowing the heat to travel evenly. Pine woods were used to fire in the stove to give the tea’s unique character of gently smokiness and pine wood.
