Type Of Teas

Black tea was born in Tongmuguan, Wuyi Mountain, Fujian, and Lapsang Souchong is the originator of black tea. The process is made by withering, rolling, fermenting and drying, which belongs to fully fermented tea. Chinese black tea is mainly divided into three types: Souchong black tea, Gongfu black tea, and red crushed tea.

1. Souchong black tea
Including Lapsang Souchong, Outer Mountain Souchong, and Smoke Souchong. Among them, Lapsang Souchong is of the highest quality, with the aroma of pine smoke and the sweetness of longan. Since Zhengshantang founded Jinjunmei in 2005, it has been loved by many tea lovers. At present, Jinjunmei is the highest grade Souchong black tea.

2. Gongfu black tea
The production of traditional Souchong black tea was spread to Qimen, Anhui Province and perfected there. The refined craftsmanship makes the production of black tea labor-intensive and time-consuming, and requires experienced masters to work carefully. The name of Gongfu Black Tea is a reflection of this situation. Gongfu black tea is produced in many places and has many varieties. It usually has a bright red soup, a strong taste and a unique fragrance. For example, Keemun black tea, whose cords are tightly knotted with front shoots, tastes mellow and sweet, and has a unique rose fragrance (commonly known as "Qimen fragrance").

3. Broken red tea
The appearance of black crushed tea began in India in the 1920s. It is found that the finer the raw material is, the more beneficial it is to the fermentation process. Therefore, kneading and cutting are added in the production process, and the name "red crushed tea" mainly reflects the characteristics of its crushed tea. The quality of crushed tea is lower than that of leaf tea.

4. Junmei black tea
In 2010, Zhengshantang exported the production process of Jinjunmei to tea producing areas across the country, established the Junmei Chinese brand, and produced Junmei black tea of the same quality as Wuyi black tea, such as Xinyang red, Badong red, Wanqing red, etc. , not only has the characteristics of local black tea, but also has the characteristics of fragrance and sweetness of Junmei black tea.
