Description Additional Information Steeping Guideline
This is a beautiful looking and exceptional quality black tea grown in the Yuchih Township area of central Nantou County, Taiwan. The plantation is located in the hills overlooking the famous "Sun Moon Lake," which is Taiwan's largest natural lake and a very popular tourist attraction. The dry leaves are beautifully dark, long and twisted, and are predominantly composed of complete/whole leaves. It has a distinctively malty aroma in the dry and wet leaves that is strongly reminiscent of a good Yunnan or Assam black tea. The flavor profile is malty-sweet with a bit of fruit, a bit of spice, and very little astringency. It produces an exceptionally smooth and sweet cup of black tea.
