Tea Withering

On-line Shopping: Black Tea

       Black tea could come from the same plant whereas green tea. Although certain strains of that plant are preferred for each type, the chief difference lies in processing. The traditional method of processing black tea involves four basic steps: withering, rolling (for Congou types), fermenting (oxidizing), and drying (firing, de-enzymizing). Their leaves are dark, but the liquors are reddish when brewed, such as the "Keemun Red" tea. The fine teas are always hand-processed as the special way of shaping certain kinds, for instance, Golden Monkey Tea, Hong Lo (Red Snail Spring) and Golden Needles.

Liquor Color - China Black Tea Item No. B08402-1 China Black Tea with Silver Tips

This Chinese black tea with a little bit coarse leaf and sliver tips is grown in the South Chinese province of Yunnan. ‘Withering’ is the first step in the process of making black tea.  The fresh leaves are spread on trays called ‘tats’ and as the leaves dry they lose moisture and begin to wilt for about fifteen hours.  Then they go to the next step ‘rolling’.  The rolling process twists the leaf and bruises it, thus encouraging fermentation.  The oxidation process begins, the leaf turns darker in color and the recognizable tea odor develops. As soon as the leaf has fermented to the desired level, it is fired to stop fermentation and destroy bacteria.  After firing, the tea is spread out to cool,then graded and sorted. This tea produces a strong, thick liquoring with sweet and sappy taste.Packing - China Black Tea
