This special black tea comes from Guilin, a prefecture-level city in the northeast of China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. It is a hand-picked Autumn harvested black tea processed with sun-drying technique (Shai Hong 晒红). The tea is picked, wilted, fried, bruised by rolling, wet withered, and then finally sun-dried in it's final stage similarly to raw pu-erh mao cha. When sun-drying is applied in the final stage as opposed to heat-drying, the result is a black tea that is more subtle when young, but ages very well over the coming years.  Younger sun-dried black teas also tend to steep longer and display more character in the middle to later steeps.

This is a strong black tea with plenty of depth and complexity that will age wonderfully, developing honey sweetness and earthy spice character after just a few years.

The addition of osmanthus flowers adds a unique apricot fruit and butter character to the honey and mineral sweet of the black tea. Osmanthus is a flower native to the Guangxi province of China and is the city flower of its capital, Guilin, where it is often a symbol of love & romance.
