A gorgeous tea with a surprising depth of flavour, Gushu Sundried Black Tea is made from the first spring harvest of 200-year-old assamica trees in Xiaohusai Village, Lincang, Yunnan. Dried under the sun, this tea tastes of succulent fruit and raisins, with virtually no bitterness. Our Tea Bars are pressed into a compact chocolate bar shape for easy portioning and brewing. To brew, simply break off a square, add hot water, and enjoy!

Sun-drying the tea (instead of oven-baking it) allows the tea to continue oxidising, ageing, and changing flavour over time. 

We love how the fruity flavour of this tea lasts for so many infusions. It’s a great ‘wow’ tea to serve to people whose main reference for black tea is English Breakfast teabags, as it shows how diverse the world of black tea really is.

This 90g bar has 12 squares of tea and you can brew each square 4-5 times, depending on the size of your brewing vessel.

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
1 square | per 100ml | 95°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 4 steeps

While black tea is often brewed with boiling water, we find that the complex fruity notes of Gushu Sundried Black Tea are enhanced with slightly cooler temperatures.

You can 'rinse the tea' with hot water (throwing out the first infusion) to get the squares to loosen faster.

Western style (Teapot)
1 square | per 150ml | 90°C | 3 mins
+1 min per steep for at least 2 steeps

Cold brew
2 squares | 1L | Room temp/ refrigerated | 6 hours

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
