The original name of Fu Tea is called Fuzhuan Cha. Zhuan means “brick” in Chinese. Literally, Fuzhuan Cha means “Fu brick tea” in Chinese. This tea is called Fuzhuan Cha since tea is always processed and compressed into brick form. Fu Tea was once known as Hu Cha because it was produced in Hunan province. It was later given the name Fu Tea because in the old days, the tea makers of Fu Tea specially selected Fu-day (伏天) to process the tea. Fu-day is the hottest day in summer. There are only 3 Fu-day in every lunar year.  The tea undergoes processing in a similar fashion to Pu Erh or other Dark teas.


It is compressed or stored in a very particular way so that  a specific type of mold will start growing, producing spores that are called “Golden Flower” (Jin Hua). The quantity of golden flower is the quality index of Fu Tea, the more golden flowers the better the tea is believed to be and the greater the health benefits. The mold also produces organic acid during fermentation which changes the character of the tea adding taste and flavour.
