This special black tea goes by the name “Shai Hong”, meaning “black tea dried in the sun.” It is the only black tea finished in sunshine, rather than dried in a tea roasting oven. It is entirely handcrafted with leaves harvested from the large leaf Assamica tea plant varietal in the mountains of Yunnan. Taking a sip of this tea is like getting a sweet hug from the sun.

Tasting Notes:

Our sun-dried black is wild-foraged from tea trees growing on sun-drenched, rocky mountainsides. Its oxidation and “roasting” is entirely sun-powered. This can only happen in a high-altitude place like the remote Ailao mountains of Yunnan Province where there’s enough strong sunlight during the spring tea harvest. The result is a rare black tea that is both robust and refined, remarkably smooth, with naturally sweet and malty notes.

Black Tea is known to banish fatigue, stimulate mental powers, and raise energy levels. It has been shown to reduce stress hormone levels and acts as a nerve sedative, frequently relieving headaches. Black tea contains a number of vitamins considered essential for maintaining health, including Carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, has antioxidant and protective properties, Vitamin B1 and Panothenic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.

Black Tea also contains antioxidants which may help to protect your body from the ravages of aging and environmental effects. Because they are allowed to ferment completely before drying, most black teas are especially rich in those polyphenols which have been shown to be effective against dementia in aging as well as AIDS related dementia. These compounds penetrate the blood brain barrier and have also been found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Black tea is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. It can be topically applied to cuts, bruises and burns, and is famous for its sunburn relief and has been shown to have a positive effect on preventing tooth decay and gum disease.
