It has a strong umami flavour and aroma that can be detected upon the first sip. Its thick sweetness coats the tongue and lingers after swallowing.
The brewing time can be shortened for the first cup, and extended for subsequent cups, allowing you to savor its taste.
Fruity aftertaste with a cool, refreshing finish; ideal when pairing with western desserts like cream, tarts and oily sweets.

Black tea is best when roasted to its maximum potential, as this enhances its sweetness and refreshing taste.

Black Tea making process

1. Harvesting: Gather young, supple tea leaves from the tea plant.

2. Withering: Let the leaves dry and become more flexible.

3.Tossing/Shaking: Tenderly bruise the leaves to initiate oxidation.

4. Oxidation: Allow the leaves to react with oxygen to evoke flavors. The degree of oxidation determines the tea's category.

5. Fixation: Heat the leaves to halt oxidation and preserve flavors.

6. Rolling: Form the leaves to discharge aromatic compounds and juices.

7. Drying: Eliminate lingering moisture from the leaves to secure the tea.
