Crafted in the style of Chinese dark teas (like puerh, and other heicha), this is a post-fermented tea. The flavor is deep and rich, with notes of coffee, wet wood, and rich earth. The texture is well-rounded with a sharp finish. The tea is surprisingly clean tasting, with a dry, lasting aftertaste.

This tea was originally developed by request of a Japanese company. They wanted a fermented tea in the style of Chinese shou pu'erh, but produced under hygienic conditions. Shou pu'erh production in China is usually done at a very large scale involving the humid fermentation of tonnes of leaf, so it can be difficult to monitor the fermentation process.

To create a clean fermentation process, this farm crafts this tea using modern scientific procedures, carefully fermenting the tea in a sanitized environment over a period of 4 weeks. The result is a deep, earthy flavor with a clean taste and aroma.
