This is a Spring 2017 Mengku Black Tea that has been roasted in bamboo and then cut into small sections and individually wrapped. The tea was harvested in the Da Hu Sai area of Mengku County in Lincang.
Bamboo is cut fresh and then loaded with tea and put in an electric oven. As the bamboo heats up the aromatic water vapor in the bamboo sections is released and the steam permeates the tea inside. The tea leaves are gradually loaded into the hot steaming section of bamboo, and tamped down as the tea becomes softened by the steam. Once the bamboo sections are filled with tea the sections are allow to roast in the oven for several hours and then allowed to dry further. After drying is complete the bamboo (with the tea inside) is cut into small sections and then individually wrapped.
