The 2016 ChocoBar Black Tea is a 100g brick, with a shape that is easily breakable for convenient brewing.
The brick is made of a blend of Yunnan large leaf varietal black tea that was sun dried. It can be aged or brewed immediately. This tea has an airy fragrance, with fruity notes and a smooth texture.
A blend of both white and black tea, Hot Brandy is a completely new style of cake that was born of experimentation. The soup is thick, smooth, and fragrant. It fairs well with both gongfu style and western style brewing. The tea has excellent endurance and can steep for a very long time and can even withstand being simmered or boiled without becoming acrid.
Both the white tea and black tea have been sun dried and should age well together. However, this cake is the first of its kind; how it will age is anybody's guess.
