This tea was hand-fired three times over three months for a much deeper, darker tea. The deep roast makes this tea even sweeter, while bringing out a unique sparkling / cooling sensation that you don’t normally see in Big Red Robe. The textural sensations of the roast accentuate and contrast with the warming flavor of the tea for a powerful dynamic. Each round of hand-firing takes over twelve hours, adding an immense amount of labor to finishing this reserve-level tea, but the natural biodiversity and mineral-driven terroir of the Li Family’s land make this worth the extra effort to finish so meticulously.
