Nine Bend Black Dragon

Nine Bend Black Dragon is a full bodied tea with deep burgundy depth. Excellent as an after dinner tea.


In 1851 while making a routine inspection of his tea plants, Mr. Huyincai noticed a small section that seemed to be producing leaf of exceptional quality. Mr. Huyincai regarded this exceptional crop as a gift from mother nature and decided that it should be processed in a new and unique way. He plucked the leaf and decided to allow it to ferment before firing it, a process that turned the leaf black. While this technique of its own is not unique, Mr. Huyincai also developed a complicated production procedure that resulted in a tea so special he decided to name it 9 Bend Black Dragon.

Unfortunately, not much is known about his complicated production procedure since the details of it are judiciously guarded by a handful of people in FuanCity to this day. What we can tell you is that the name is both derived from the lucky 9 BendRiver that flowed through his birth-place of Wuyishan (9 is a lucky number in China), and the symbol of the black Dragon, long considered lucky in China. Within a short time his tea had won just about every award there was to be won throughout China and Europe.

As in the days of Mr. Huyincai, 9 Bend Black Dragon- which goes by the production name off Panyong Needle- is only produced in the district of Panyong in Fuan City. Production totals these days are around 50 tons annually and the tea is still regarded by traders as one of Fujian's finest exports. Professional tasters praise this tea for its exceptionally fresh, sweetish infusion, pure, thick nose, and bright golden cup.
