Commercially made black teas just can’t compare to the true original. Following the same meticulous hand-making process used for centuries, foragers gather the young leaf buds of a Fujian green varietal that grows wild in Fuding, China. Left whole, patiently, skillfully and completely hand-oxidized over five hours and then heated, the finished leaves steep a malty rich, cooked-caramel body sparkling with sweet chocolate and tobacco notes.

A must-taste for black tea devotees, our extremely limited supply (just 6 kg. were made this year) is going fast.
