On May 1st, we used the oven to bake this Ba xian at a temperature of 90 degrees. Then 8 hours. The purpose of the first roasting is to roast off the miscellaneous flavors on the surface of the tea. Then dry the water on the surface of the tea leaves ,but still keep the bottom leaves green
The second roasting time was charcoal roasting time on June 10th: the temperature was 105 degrees, and the roasting took 16 hours. During the whole roasting period, we turn the tea every hour. The temperature is relatively high, allowing the tea to roast thoroughly. Turn the bottom tea leaves to dark green. Use charcoal fire to drive away the bitterness in the tea. Change the tea soup more smooth and color of the tea soup more clean and bright .
This tea tea soup is smooth. Elegant aroma. Mellow taste, very obvious congwei 枞味（old bush taste ).
