The all-time favorite, sweet Taiwanese black tea for the happy day starting or nice forest walks. The amazing taste of it is a mixture of the classical black tea notes, like cocoa, chocolate, and the fragrant Taiwanese notes, like slightly caramel, pumpkin, and sweet potato.

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.

Tasting Notes:
Steamed gaiwan: caramel, grill vegetables, like sweet potato, eggplant, and paprika
Tastes, feelings: The really nice sweet potato-like taste comes first. Then slightly smokiness with some cocoa, chocolate, and much happiness. The 90 ºC is just perfect for this tea, at 95 ºC it can bitter a little.
