Formosa Assam Black 2020 No.631
Taiwanese black tea
charming and sweet caramel notes
Sun Moon lake, Taiwan
All time favourite, sweet Taiwanese black tea.
Zhongliao is situated in central-Taiwan, Nantou county (南投). The northern Wu, or Black river (烏溪) and the southern Zhoushui river (濁水溪) embrace this area, providing it with a perfect climate for tea growing. Besides, south from its borders, at the feet of the mountains spreads out the Sun-Moon lake (日月潭), a most charming vista indeed.
Its taste profile unites the dark chocolate taste of classic black teas with the more fragrant and sweet notes of Taiwan: mild caramel, sweet potato and a hint of vanilla.
