Chinese Bitter Tea

The Chinese Bitter Tea (Kuding Tea) is derived from different plants which produce leaves with bitter taste. One or two leaves are rolled together to produce a tea in the shape of a straw. The tea is brewed like the Chinese Green Tea, and only one straw is used per cup (or teapot). This is a bitter and refreshing tea, to be enjoyed all day long. In China this tea is considered “for man” due to the bitterness.
