Hei Cha Assortment – Classic

Among the more mysterious categories, Hei Cha is a loose grouping of tea styles, some with very long histories and others which are modern developments (most notably shu pu'er), defined by their fermentation—and consequent inky liquors. This selection of Hei Cha includes both compressed and loose teas in different forms.
