Heicha Dark Tea with Rose Petals
This endearing tea is from the family of tea called 'heicha', which simply translates to 'dark tea'. Similar to shou puer, heicha is oxidized and then goes through an aging or post-fermenting process. These teas are usually pressed into cakes for further aging and development. This particular little heart is earthy, sweet and mild, and is lifted by the subtle aroma of the rose petals pressed with the tea. You'll fall in love!
