From Canton Tea Co

Hand-made black tea made from a secret varietal that has exceptional flavour.
This is an example of what is possible when tea making is approached with new eyes. It is made from a secret tea varietal that produces remarkable aromas and flavours, but which might well be discarded for commercial production where aspects such as yield are more important. This varietal is known to have high polyphenol and theanine levels relative to other varietals, and is particularly rich in EGCG, the most important tea antioxidant. The withered leaf is hand rolled for 15 minutes, followed by a 60 minute oxidation period and final low temperature drying, which is important for preserving the aromatic compounds in the finished tea. Satemwa has a team of ladies who do all the speciality tea processing and are becoming very knowledgeable about the nuances of tea making.

2 tsp per cup (200-250ml). Water at 95°C; infuse 2 – 3 minutes, repeat. Use 5g in a 200ml gaiwan. Water at 95°C; infuse 2-3 minutes, repeat.
