Be the first to review this product

From £8.00
Product code: 16225

Availability: In stock

Huo Qing tea was first produced in Yong Xi village in the Anhui province, home to many famous teas. Its dark, glossy leaves with an edge of yellow rolled into little snail-shaped pellets unfurl slowly as they infuse. It is called Jade Fire as the tea has been fired over charcoal. The distinctively rich and smooth floral flavour presents a pleasant balance of astringency and sweetness with a long and refreshing aftertaste. As it has been fired by charcoal during the process, it has a unique light sweet smokiness in the aroma. The rolling process, similar to Gunpowder has been carried out the same way for centuries.

Details

Huo Qing tea was first produced in Yong Xi village in the Anhui province, home to many famous teas. Yong Xi Huo Qing first became available during the Ming Dynasty but it wasn't until Qing Dynasty that this tea became well-known. It originates from Jing County in the western part of the province, and legend has it that this tea was originally processed using tea leaves that were picked from a Jin Yin (Gold and Silver) tea tree. It is so called because the all the leaves from this tea tree were gold on one side and silver on the other. Its dark, glossy leaves with an edge of yellow rolled into little snail-shaped pellets unfurl slowly as they infuse. It is called Jade Fire as the tea has been fired over charcoal. The distinctively rich and smooth floral flavour presents a pleasant balance of astringency and sweetness with a long and refreshing aftertaste. As it has been fired by charcoal during the process, it has a unique light sweet smokiness in the aroma. The rolling process, similar to Gunpowder has been carried out the same way for centuries.
