The origin of "Fuzhuan tea" is its fermentation process. Before there was a modern factory and drying room, the fermentation of Fuzhuan tea depended upon the natural environment. Only on the hottest days of summer could there be the right conditions to ferment Fuzhuan tea. And because its aroma and taste are similar to the Chinese medicinal herb, Smilax, and it is used to prevent and cure diseases, it is called "Fu Tea" and "Fu Brick Tea." Because of its health-giving functions and benefits for mankind, it is called "Fu Tea."
Anhua Fuzhuan tea is a post-fermented black tea. The production of hand-made Fu tea requires more than 20 processes such as material selection, screening, stacking, pressing, blooming, and drying; especially the “blooming process” of Fu tea is magical. No chemical materials are added, and the temperature and humidity are carefully controlled to allow “golden flowers” to naturally bloom; golden flowers are not artificially scattered in the tea, and will not fall off after shaking. It is a special kind of tea craft. The "golden flower" in Fuzhuan tea is known as the saccharomyces cristatum [a yeast used in wine-making and baking.]. It has a yellow granular shape and is more obvious when viewed under a magnifying glass. It is a unique probiotic strain of Anhua Fucha, and the only strain listed as a secondary secret protection in the national tea industry. Microbiologists discovered: Golden Flower has been found on the Millennium Ganoderma [reishi mushroom] in the past and it is very precious.
