    • Dian Hong

      Traditional concept of standard Yunnan Black Tea processing generally used by tea factories.
      Light to medium oxidation , rolling and then heat processing for the final fixation
      in order to promote the sweet taste and preserve fruity notes same time.
      Dian Hong means Yunnan Red ,it comes on market in many grades and forms.
      Traditional grade of one type and two leaves is being mistakenly superceded by tipsy golden in color grades due to their more attractive look.

    • Dark Oxidized

      Dark oxidized black tea usually comes with medium to dark roast called " ti xiang " or " gao xiang "
      which means - elevated aroma. The high temperature roast at the end of the processing
      helps to promote the sweetness with chocolate notes
      with touch of roasted nuts ( reflecting actual roast ) .
      This concept is commonly used by Fujian black tea producers but it is also implemented in
      Yunnan Black tea production , as it's also applied to less oxidised tea leaf.

    • Sun Dried

      Sun dried black tea , known as Shai Hong , is simply processed with light oxidation ,
      rolling and dying on the sun ( directly or in the drying glass house ) .
      The initial flavour spectrum is rather sour , due to not complete fixation
      (  not like it's common for dark roasted black tea ) whcih in time is transforming
      into the jam fruity sweet notes. Therefore shaihong tea is recommended
      for further ageing and it is also sold in pressed form.
      This type of processing is commonly used by tea farmers who do not possess
      special equipment for making the fully fixed ( heat processed ) black tea.
      In modern tea business this concept is also being overtaken by bigger producers who use the gentle heat to imitate the sun drying environment.

    • Wild Varietal

      Red ( black ) tea made from wild varietal tea trees
      either growing naturally unattended in the forest or
      being grown by tea farmers on remote locations
      in suitable environment for such a trees.

    • Red Oolong

      Red Oolong ,  also known as Hong Shui - Red Water , is medium to dark oxidized tea
      with following oolong tea processing called " yao qing "  - tossing the leaves on big bamboo trays
      before shaping and doing final heat processing for the fixation.
      The tea is commonly shaped in small snail like shape in order to preserve the taste
      and aroma for long time , which is also guaranteed by sealing it in air tight or vaccum packs.
