Tian Jian 天尖 is the top grade of Hunan Dark Tea. It is produced in Anhua County in Central West Hunan. The Anhua Couty has a long history of Dark Tea producing. And Tian Jian Dark Tea was selected to tribute to the emperors.
Anhua County is located in the Wuling Mountains where is the place producing Chinese high quality teas. The Wuling Mountain has dense forstry covering, rich water resource and soil with rich minerals to grow tea. The material to produce Tian Jian is plcuked in the Guyu 谷雨 Festival , which is half a month later than Qing Ming 清明, when tea leaves are grown but not too old.
The processing of Tian Jian is conducted at the same time to produce Hei Mao Cha (Dark Tea Raw Material). It follows the flow, Plucking-Killing (Frying)-Rolling-Piling-Re-rolling-Drying.
The Kiling is conducted to kill the enzymes in the tea leaves. Rolling squeezed out the the tea juice from the tea leaves. And Piling is the most critical processing of Tian Jian and Hei Mao Cha. The piling lasts around 12-24 hours and it change the texture of the tea leaves by hydrothermal effect, and also the micro-organisms grow in the piling. (The piling of Dark Tea is not oxidation as many people think it is like that of Black Tea. Because the enzymes in the tea leaves had been killed before piling.)
After piling, the tea leaves will be sent for rollong once again. This step further shapes the tea body. Then the tea will be baked dry finally. In tradition, the tea is dried by 七星灶 Seven Star Stove. And heated up by burning of pine wood. So the tea achieve pine smoke flavor by the traditioanl processing. In the modern processing, the tea is dried by baking oven heated by electricity. By this method, there is no pine smoke flavor in the tea.
Usually after Hei Mao Cha is produced, it will be stocked in the warehouse for one year to transform vintage. And Tian Jian is sorted out from the Hei Mao Cha. The tender tea shoot with tips is slected out to be Tian Jian.
