Formosa Assam Black 2022 No.631
delicate tea for everyday happiness
sweet Taiwanese black tea
charming caramel, and sweet potato notes
Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan
Our all-time favorite is 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 of its borders, at the feet of the mountains spreads out the Sun-Moon lake (日月潭), a most charming vista indeed.
The 90 ºC is just perfect for this tea, at 95 ºC it can bitter a little.
