From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This is undoubtedly a one of kind tea. First, it is a white tea made from a Taiwanese cultivar, the Hong Yu T-18 from which the renowned Red Jade black tea is made from. It is also quite an unusual tea: not many white teas are produced in Taiwan, if any, even less using this particular cultivar. We will take full responsibility for treading new territory in tea making as this a true house tea: it was made in our family’s own factory using leaves from our own Red Jade garden. Furthermore, if there was ever one tea that we could label “handmade” this would be it! These leaves have not encountered any form of machinery in the making of it. Similar to a Chinese Shou Mei white tea, young leaves were hand-picked, gently laid to wither, hand-fluffed to stimulate a light oxydation and desiccated to lock-in their lush fragrance. if you are familiar with Red Jade Black Tea you will be surprised by the striking aromatics of this tea. The fresh eucalyptus, cinnamon and camphor-like coolness is truly heady. The liqueur is sweet, thick with a nice dry tannic quench. A truly pleasant surprise that we are proud to humbly propose to our Taiwan Tea Crafts clientele. Get some while it last as this is a very limited quantity Lot.

Drank this one yesterday, and was very impressed with the overall flavor.

I thought the mouthfeel was very silky, and there was a nice sweet cream note throughout the entirety of the sip. Undertones of rose, and then a mix of black cherry/bitter almond in the body. Finish was just a hint of lingering bitter almond and resin.

Complex and delightful!
