This variety is also known as 'brick tea' because of the shape of its pressing, which was invented by the famous Chinese tea factory Baishaxi (specializing in the production of black tea). For Fu Zhuan, the presence of Jin Hua (the"Golden Flower") is necessary – the more golden grains on the surface of tea, the higher the quality of the tea. Jin Hua is a fungus that provides a variety of healing effects and is especially useful for the work of the intestines.
The content of cuttings in this tea is more than in other black teas, it can reach 15% of the total volume. Although before the process of pressing was automated, the number of cuttings in the tea was much larger. The number of branches is essential in achieving an oxygen-free environment which is more suitable for the development of a beneficial "Golden Flower" fungus. Cuttings significantly reduce ventilation in pressed tea, and also help to keep its shape better. Time improves the quality of Fu Zhuan, as well as other black teas. It softens the taste, improves the aroma and increases the healthy benefits of the tea.
