Fujian blacks are perhaps the sweetest of all black teas, although they would not have the strength that Assam, Yunnan and Sri Lanka blacks have. The maltiness is also rather more floral than cereal. However, these are exactly their likable characters. The area around Wuyi was one of the first production region. Now all across the north to northeastern provincial border areas are producing black teas.

In Fujian province in southern China, ancient tea trees still grow wild in some of the forests. They can be hundreds, even thousands, of years old. Purists rave about the rich brown colour of the steeped tea, the aroma of sweet forest floor, the clean, natural finish. Our wild Fujian Bohea black uses robust, new leaves plucked from wild-growing trees, slightly twisted to preserve their natural flavour. This tea is characterized by its large leaves.

This black tea has a distinctive appearance with its mix of long, twisted black leaves, brownish-purple buds. When infused, this tea produces an aromatic, crystal clear, reddish-amber infusion. The flavor incorporates the fruity-sweet and honey elements from the aroma with more classic, malty, “black tea” type flavors into a complex infusion that leaves a lovely, lingering aftertaste in the mouth. Highly aromatic, with a flavour that fills the palate.

Fujian black teas are enjoyable as you would with any other black teas. However, because its unique character is not about strength, adding milk or sugar to cover the bitterness as in other teas is not going to give you a same tasting tea drink — there is no excessive bitterness needed to cover up and the milk or sugar will lower the taste character.

Brewing instruction: Use 5 grams of tea per 200ml of water. Heat water to 95°C degrees (180°F) and steep for one minute. Add 30 secs to subsequent infusions. Adjust the amount of leaf, steeping time, and water temperature used according to your preference.

Yesterday my wisdom tooth broke in half and fell out while I was eating soup, so I went to the dentist today and it turns out my tooth is much worse than I thought and I need an operation. Part of my gum needs to be cut out as well as the jaw bone sanded down before they can extract the tooth. Ten month wait minimum if I want to be gassed and knocked out or three months if I have it done awake and under heavy sedation. Two weeks to decide while I’m on anti biotics. I’m thinking of just going ahead and having it done without being put under, the quicker the better.

So as a treat I’m using my Chinese gaiwan set and trying this black tea. It smells beautiful in raw form, like chocolate and soft burnt wood. The leaves are large and curly but match it’s wonderful scent. I like a full leaf black.

First Steep – 1 minute –
Light in colour, scent and flavour. Very sweet, like raw sugar cane and caramel. A little malty in the after taste.

Second Steep – 2 minutes –
Still mild but still getting a pure sugar cane flavour. The after taste has increased however and now tastes like malt, wood and caramel mixed with chocolate.

Third Steep – 3 minutes –
Very similar to the first steep again, as sweet and pure in flavour too.

Next time I may try adding 7g instead of 5g to see how it comes out but I enjoyed the gentle caramel and sugar that this tea offers. It doesn’t taste black but it did stand out in a positive way. A good start so far but will experiment to get it perfect though honestly it’s not far off.

Oh my gosh, good luck with your tooth!


Wow, that sounds very unpleasant. What will happen in the 3 months inbetween?


Thank you keychange .

Christina I just have to get along as best I can, avoid eating on the left side and try to not make it any worse. Two weeks is when I have a check up to see it’s condition after the anti biotics and report my decision. It’s longer than I would like but hopefully the build up won’t be too bad.

Ouch, I did some drilling in my jawbone once while being awake. It was unpleasant but didnt hurt at all. until a few hours later…. Not to bad though.


Eeeps. Sorry to hear!
I can tell you that I did the heavy sedation thing for my wisdom teeth and it wasn’t bad at all. I was aware of everything but it was a little foggy, and the nature of the drugs where that I really couldn’t feel anything, and I didn’t care what was happening (I do have anxiety, so that was tons better than I expected)


Yikes. Sorry that happened to you!
