Gongfu Black


Danjia Zhai, Cangyuan County, Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China. Another great find from Yunnan. Gongfu black tea is a style of black tea making that originated in northern Fujian Province. Gongfu translates to doing something with skill. Gongfu black tea processing involves a lengthy withering and oxidation process designed to bring out the most in the leaf. This tea does not dissappoint. Medium bodied with notes of honey, rose, and malt. A great lasting finish. This tea is also fairly forgiving when being brewed, so it can be pushed.
