Bai Sha Xi Tea Factory in An Hua County of Hunan is the earliest producer of "Dark Tea" (hei cha) in Hunan and the first to produce the Golden Flower bricks in China. Bai Sha Xi was established in 1940 to product Hei Cha bricks, then in 1953 they produced the first Fu Brick with Golden Flowers.
This is an incredibly unique tea that uses finished Tian Jian tea from An Hua and then processes it like Fu Brick tea with golden flowers! The golden flowers in this Tian Fu brick are a kind of orange/brown color. The Tian Jian being darker in color changed the color of the golden flowers!
The taste is malty and sweet with dried fruit after-taste!
Each Brick is 1 Kilogram. If you order anything other than a whole brick you will get pieces.
Pressed in 2011 from 2011 Spring Tea.
*Sometimes the inner brown wrapper will stick to the brick leaving some paper fibers on the tea. Use a soft cloth or brush to remove it.
ALLERGEN ALERT!!! ** Because there is a possibility the golden flowers were inoculated using wheat flour we cannot guarantee this tea is safe for those with Celiac Disease or those that have severe gluten induced allergies **
