This tea is from Anhui province and is a close cousin to Pu-erh. The leaves are processed differently during fermentation, and not compressed as a beeng cha. This tea should be washed once for 30 seconds to get the old off. But after that this tea really delivers. The flavors are mouth filling and the brew is dark. The leaves infuse over three or four steeps, more if you used a lot of leaves. The basket presentation is very cool also. Baskets vary slightly in size, and some baskets are in worse shape than others. Worth having. Please inquire about whole basket if interested, each varies by weight. This Anhui varietal of black tea is processed in the traditional "wo dui" method. "Wo dui" or (Oxidation) fermentation piling process is similar to the method used to make ripe (shou) pu-erh tea.
