The Golden Flower is what is unique to PHatea®, the only tea to have this present during fermentation.Although PHatea® has been consumed for over 500 years, less than 30 years ago the mold responsible for the Golden Flower was discovered, the fungus species Eurotium Cristatum.Although many have tried to duplicate the secret process of PHatea® production, none have proved successful because if even just one of the 32 steps is incorrect, the final product will not result in the color, flavor, value and health benefits of true PHatea®.The entire process starts with a special quality camellia sinensis, the hardy, large tea leaves from the Hunan Province which are freshly cut and collected.The first step from here is to perform a process called “kill green” or “cooking” which is low heat applied to the leaves to deactivate the oxidation enzymes triggered by removal of the leaf from the live plant.This deactivation stops the natural oxidation process of the leaf, the process we know more commonly as the “browning” which occurs for example, when an apple has been cut in half and begins to turn brown.

Steam is again used to soften and moisturize the tea leaves before they are then packed and pressed into metal molds to produce uniform bricks of PHatea®.The final step before packaging is a drying phase of 5 to 7 days at a temperature of 30-40 degrees Celsius.PHatea® continues to grow the Golden Flower in the brick improving its’ color, flavor, value and ultimately health benefits to the consumer as it ages, thus it “never goes bad” due to this unique property, the Golden Flower.In the modeling box the tea is allowed to cool over some 80 minutes and then removed from the casing to have excess material removed from the edges, producing a final uniform brick.The bricks are then moved to shelving in special rooms where the temperature and humidity are controlled by another Tea Master.
