Grown in the subtropical hills of Guizhou, the top bud sets are plucked "ming-chien," or before the spring rains. After a quick withering, the leaves are fired and shaped, dried, and then a second stage of shaping occurs. This second shaping leaves the leaves resembling Gunpowder, although with much more selective plucking and more careful processing, the similarity is merely aesthetic.
