Origin: Shi Jing Keng, Huang Tian, China (~700-900m elevation)
Huo means fire and Qing means green. This tea is a time-consuming traditional pearl-shaped green tea to produce. Each batch goes through over twelve hours of active making time as the leaves are slowly dried and shaped over a low-temperature wok. This part of the process puts this tea in a unique borderline tea between a Chao Qing and a Hong Qing green tea. It’s bold and forward like a Chao Qing while still silky and smooth like a Hong Qing.
