Description

Our Assam "Black beauty" #8 is organically grown and produced in beautiful Taiwan. Assam Black Beauty is a distinct and highly appealing tea with a smooth richness of taste that is simply unsurpassed. With natural hints of cream, honey and bourbon! This tea is deliciously malty with notes of raisin and stone fruit. This is a tea that is very smooth, rich in character and deliciously deep! You will notice that the flavor is not nearly as brisk as a traditional Indian Assam, but almost has dark oolong characteristics.

Black tea crafting in Taiwan was initiated by the Japanese in 1903. In 1926, the first Assam cultivar was introduced and planted around the hills of Sun Moon Lake in Nantou County. This lake's climate, environment, and terroir was deemed the most similar to the Assam tea gardens of India. Today, Sun Moon Lake produces the majority of Taiwan's black tea between three distinct cultivars: a pure-stock Assam, a native indigenous cultivar, and a hybrid cultivar named #8!

Enjoy the full smooth flavor of our luxury ssam Black Beauty #8!

Not a super fan of this tea as a hot beverage. The smell was nice, but I felt it had a lack of flavor. I let it cool down and was much more impressed. I think it would be a good iced tea or a base for a fruity summer drink. I mixed a second steep with 'Organic Huang Cha Yellow Tea' and it was amazing!

This one really deserves the 5 star rating. I'm paranoid that one day it won't be available, so i buy extra when i order. The price initially almost scared me away, but i'm glad that i splurged and got it. Being addicted to this tea only proves how much of a tea lover you are. The taste is smooth, not bitter or tannic at all. more like a sweet (vanilla) tobacco aftertaste.
