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.
