1-3g of tea per tea cup (200ml). Boil fresh, filtered water to 95℃. Steep for 2-3 minutes.
OR try this with short brews in Gong Fu style (We prefer this method as optimal flavour is released with each cup). Boil water to 95℃. Use 4-8g tea leaves in your strainer or gaiwan using 150ml water
8 steeps: 6s, 8s, 10s, 15s, 20s etc. You can basically make one serving and sip all day. That is what we love to do with our Black Beauty!
Worry not if you don’t have traditional gong fu tea ware. You can easily use your strainer to steep in your cup, making several separate steeps, or use a small teapot not using more than the recommend 150ml. Porcelain is highly recommended, for bringing out optimal flavour of the Black Beauty.
Aged Black Tree Tea
Our ancient Black Tree Tea possesses a unique, rich, wildflower/honey aroma and has a very distinctive taste. We highly recommend this tea to newbies and connoisseurs alike.
Made from an ancient forest-grown tea tree variety, Camellia Taliensis, found only in South West Wunnan, it uses only fresh leaves of the ancient wild trees that are more than 300 years old, followed by a series of steps, such as withering, rolling, oxidation, drying. A lot of crafting has gone into creating this rare tea.
With unique fragrance and full-bodied texture, the ancient wild tree black tea offers a richer and greater complex taste than other common Yunnan black teas, that’s why people love to name it as a “Black Beauty” tea due to its distinctiveness.
