From Mountain Stream Teas

**Previously Green Heart Black

Made from a heritage variety cultivar famous for green tea, this fragrant, fruity black is a real treat. Delicate and sweet, the dark fruit upfront gives way to the strength of a summer-picked black tea without becoming bitter or astringent. Made from a bud-heavy pick, the rich and full flavor of this tea punches high above its price point.

Produced at a new partner farm only 20 minutes from downtown Taipei in one of the oldest tea growing areas of Taiwan, this tea is made in the traditional way by a tea master in his 80s. Each leaf is plucked by hand (No finger blades are even used!) and each batch of tea is tiny. This style of tea production is extremely rare as the teas produced in this fashion do not serve the current Asian Market taste points for tea, namely strong, bitter and predictable flavors. Each batch processed this way is slightly different, and the strength of these teas is in the subtle lasting sweetness, deep flavors and smooth drinkability of traditionally made tea. We are happy to support farmers still making tea in this old, delicate style.

A wee surprise was waiting for me in the post, courtesy of the wonderful Cameron!

Naturally, I chose a black tea I thought would be the similar to Yuchi Wild Mountain XD. The dry scent is very similar to Teavivre’s Bailin, and the steeped scent reminds me of prunes!

There is a light, yet syrup-like sweetness. A prune sweetness, which I’m enjoying. The tea is light overall, and smooth.

I will try to resteep this to see how it goes!

What a lovely introduction to this company! Thanks Cameron!
