Unlike other tea varieties, it is the only tea that can truly claim the term fermentation. It is actively decomposed in large hessian bags for up to 8 months, then packed into disk-like shapes called “cakes” and dried.

It has an earthy, mushroom-like flavour with floral overtones and a rich and dark liquid. It pairs well with rich and oily foods.

After being plucked, withered and rolled, the leaves are moistened before being packed into sacks and left to dry for up to 8 months to allow the tea to gradually decompose.

Once the tea has reached its desired fermentation, the leaves are “pressed” into a variety of shapes, generally known as Tea Cakes. A post-fermented Chinese speciality known as “Shou”.
