The last process of making Wuyi rock tea is charcoal fire. From the tea garden to the tea cup, every process of Wuyi rock tea is closely related. We cannot say which step is the most critical, but if we must name the most critical step, I think It should be two processes: fermentation and charcoal roasting. The control of fermentation will greatly affect the grade of the finished tea (for example, whether the aroma is high or not, and whether the taste is thick or not. I personally always think that fermentation is the most important part of the rock tea production process. the essence part). Charcoal roasting is the positioning of tea style. Because we are for the public, some people like heavy roasting and some like light roasting, so in order to cater to different needs, we have several different roasting styles for the same tea.
I personally think that as long as the tea production process is in place, it can be roasted at a high temperature or at a low temperature. It just depends on what style of Wuyi rock tea you like.
