Fermented teas are transferred to drying machines (ovens) which will then remove the moisture and arrest fermentation.
The tea is naturally rich in flavour without any added colouring.
The tea leaves and buds are selectively harvested by using shears or mechanised cutters by tea harvesters.
Conditioned air flow through and around the tea leaves to absorb the moisture content of the leaves.
Withered tea leaves are then passed through the machines which twist and squeeze the juices out of the leaves.
