Not your ordinary black tea! This tea can be intense or light (depend on how much tea leaves you use). The tea gives citrusy, berry, and woody aroma. No nutty. 99% smooth (1% astringent "bite"). Such complex and pleasant tea. Definitely recommended.
This tea is wonderful all around. It had a full flavor of honey and light fruity notes and it was very smooth. I like it for "Western" style brewing and it tasted good through about four steepings. This would be a good tea to use as an example of what a black/red tea can be for friends or family who have only had tea bag tea.
This is simply the best red tea that I have ever tried in my life as a tea connoisseur. This tea is comparable to the red tea from South Korea's Jiri-mountain area but it has a much deeper sweet character and represents the full-bodied and complex character of typical Taiwanese Black Tea. It clearly sets apart from black teas produced in Mainland China such as Keemun or Lapsang Souchong. I will definitely order this tea from you again.
So great to hear Tobias! Thank you! Yeah, we feel like the Four Seasons Spring cultivar shines when processed as a Black Tea. Our Eco-Farmed GABA Oolong is also made prominently from Four Seasons Spring leaves. The heavy or full oxidation takes all the floral character and transforms it into a sweeter, fruity character that still maintains complexity and intrigue. Thanks again for your feedback!
How does Taiwan create such amazing black teas. This one is a great example of the unexpected and complex flavors that Taiwan seems to be able to bring out in tea that no one else seems to be able to do.
