Another high mountain Taiwanese black, it has a smooth floral taste with sweet hints and balsam notes.
The tea is quite light compared to typical black teas with a pleasant sweetness and not any malt or astringency.
A limited edition tea produced in very small quantities, I've ordered 1kg this year and probably will not be able to order any more until 2021 due to the limited seasonal nature.
- Very smooth texture
- Complex taste which evolves
- Floral quality with notes of citrus, fruit and nut which develop with subsequent steeps
