A hand roasted bamboo
black tea, the 2019 Builders is a perfect balance of working class utility and artisan tea snobbery. It is our white2tea twist on the classic concept strong style of "builder's tea
" from the UK. This bud heavy whole leaf Yunnan sun dried tea was mercilessly crammed into bamboo and hand roasted over an open flame.
The result is a shard heavy tea with many of broken bits and plenty of surface area which cause the tea to steep out very quickly making a very potent brew for an afternoon pick me up or a morning eye opener. This tea is very versatile with a heavy aroma of fragrant bamboo, malt and honey; not to mention a booming lingering aftertaste. Steep in gongfu style like a bamboo loving connoisseur or western style topped off with cream like you have a job to do.
The mash up of style and function makes this unique tea a common morning cup in the white2tea house.
Each piece of bamboo was pressed with 200 grams of tea.
