Anhua Dark Tea – Brick Tea


Anhua Dark Tea Bricks are typically referred to as Fu Brick (伏砖), Hei Brick (黑砖, literally as Black Brick) and Hua Brick (花砖, Bricks with decorative patterns), which use the Anhua dark green tea as the raw materials. Anhua Dark Tea Bricks are divided into such two grades as special dark tea and ordinary dark tea.

Fu brick tea, well-known as the ancestor of fermented tea, is the top grade in the ancient dark tea. As a post-fermented tea, Fu brick tea is the most complex and unique dark tea which has the longest production processing cycle spanning from screening, sorting, pile-fermenting, weighting, steaming, compressing and molding, drying, etc. After these processing steps the raw dark green tea will be shaped brick-like in appearance, with flourishing golden flowers (发花 —— 中国黑茶特有之工艺秘诀) all over, dark and shining, red and strong tea soup, mellow to the taste with lasting scent.
