Gushu Sundried Black Tea Bar | 古樹曬紅茶磚

Tasting notes: Malty, woodsy, raisins

A gorgeous tea with a surprising depth of flavour, Gushu Sundried Black Tea is made from 200-year-old Assamica trees grown at high altitudes in Yunnan, China. Dried under the sun, this tea has a delightful flavour of succulent stewed fruit and raisins, with a hauntingly sweet aftertaste. 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!

Harvested from ancient trees (gushu 古樹) in Xiaohusai Village, Lincang, Yunnan, this tea is sun-dried instead of oven-baked, so it continues to post-oxidise over time and is ideal for ageing.

Gushu Sundried Black Tea is a rounded, fruity and sweet tea with a wonderful depth of flavour that lasts for many infusions. Great for serving to special guests or enjoying as a dessert on lazy summer afternoons.

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.

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.
