The Producer

 

Taiwan is most famous for high mountain oolong teas, withThis  floral notes and creamy textures. These oolong teas are usually picked in the Spring and Winter. Less well known are Taiwanese black teas, which are some of the most delicious in the world.

 

The Huang family make this excellent small-batch black tea on their organic garden on Jade Mountain.

This Batch

 

In the summer season, little insects called leafhoppers start to attack the tea plants. The leaves naturally defend themselves by producing a scent that tastes of honey, which the leafhoppers don’t like, but we love. This honey flavour is captured in the exquisite flavour profile of this tea.

Tasting Notes

 

The tea opens with dried fruit and honey notes, almost like honey soaked raisins. Then come the rose floral notes. The texture is silky and smooth with almost no tannins or dryness.

Infuse 3g at 90C for 5 mins.

Storage and Ageing

 

Store this tea in a cool dry place. It will taste at its best for up to 5 years, developing in flavour over time. The tea picks up a richer dried fruit and wood note over the years. You can also purchase the Honey Black 2018 and Honey Black 2016 for your tea libraries.
