Taiwanese Alishan that was charcoal roasted to hell and back again. This is the tea that doesn’t give up. I’ve spent days trying to take a few grams of this tea to its limits and I haven’t found an end. You can go session after session with it and it will still give you a wonderful cup of tea. I haven’t managed to pull any bitterness out of it and its flavor is full on roasted. The taste is like sweet, roasted chestnuts, burned cigarette paper, and rose water. On the nose, I get cherries, charcoal, something earthy, and an almost fermented sourness. Despite all those strong flavors and smells, the tea is almost soft. This quickly became one of my staples that I always try to keep on hand.
