Chinese Black Teafrom: Get A Better Life Today
Also known as 'red tea', the Chinese black tea has been enjoyed by the Chinese tea drinkers and the world for centuries. Its popularity is even soaring these days and perhaps the main reason is that many believe Chinese black teas harbor profound and promising health benefits.
Chinese Black Tea Basics
Chinese black tea originates, of course, in China and has long been used by the Chinese as part of their daily meals.
The brewed black tea ranges from reddish brown to black. One of the most obvious characteristic of the Chinese black tea is that it mellows with age and grows richer and deeper in flavor. The vintage black teas in particular are deemed superlative, boasting flavors and aromas that conjure up the same adjectives used to distinguish fine wine or whiskey.
Storing Chinese black tea is simple. It's usually kept in a well-ventilated place and the tea requires no temperature regulation. Also, unlike the other teas, Chinese black teas come in compressed cakes with a variety of shapes and sizes -- round, square, and even bamboo-like tubes.
Types of Chinese Black Tea
Based on different processing methods, Chinese black tea can be divided into 3 types:
Souchong Black Tea: A unique type of black tea that grows at the Wuyi Mountain City in Fujian province. The pine-smoking fragrance of Souchong black tea is much different from any other black teas in the world. And, according to different producing area, this variety can be classified into four types:
* Tongmuguan Souchong which is produced in Tongmuguan county
* Lapsang Souchong, produced in Chong'An, Jianyang, Guangzhe
* XingChun Souchong, produced in other areas which around Xingcun town of Chong'An county
* Smoking Souchong, which is not from Wuyi Mountain City
Of these subclasses, Lapsang Souchong is considered the best, offering longan flavor. The Smoking Souchong, on the other hand, is made from low grade congou back tea and is processed by imitational method as other Souchong black teas. Also, the smoking fragrance of this type is exactly coming from the burning brushwood of pine plant.
Congou Black Tea: This Chinese black tea type evolved from the Souchong variety. The most famous congou Chinese black teas include the Qihong of Anhui (Keemun black), Dianhong of Yunnan, Suhong of Jiangsu, Chuanhong of Sichuan and Huhong of Hunan.
Broken Black Tea: Finally, this type is also called "graded black tea" for the reason that there's international uniform grading standard for this type of Chinese black tea. Well, according to different shapes, the broken black tea is classified into four subtypes: the whole leaf black, with short strip shape; broken leaf black, with small grain shape; fannings black, with small slice shape; and dust black, with powdered shape.
