Hong Cha, known as red tea in China (for the amber/ red colored tea liquor in the cup) and black tea in the West (for the dark color of the dried tea leaf).
This organic cultivation comes from the northern Province of Chiang Rai. Ancient trees surround the tea fields where constant rainfall and warm temperatures offer the best preconditions for this rare cultivar. The freshly plucked leaves wither approx. 18 hours. When the withering is complete, the leaves are rolled for another 4-5 hours to produce this incredible flavor.
