From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Refined by the Taiwan Research and Extension Station, this TRES No. 8 Assamica strand presents itself as a large, wonderfully curled and lustrous full leaf; reminiscent of the best Bao Zhongs or Wuyi style oolongs. A wonderfully fruity aroma emanates from the cup that evokes stewed cherries and apricot jam. In the cup, one experiences a round, fruity sweetness that is quite heady and very refreshing. A warm velvety yet full body satisfies the palate and withstands the test of a dash of milk. This is not a tea that is as thick and bold as an Indian Assam. It has a sophisticated exuberance that makes it exotically satisfying, it is a “must try” tea for all English style tea drinkers… and oolong drinkers alike! This Lot 947 comes from the same producer as all of our previous lots but, we selected a production that was made from leaves coming from our favorite grower. After years of working with the same network of partners, we’re happy to be now part of the inner circle giving us access to a privileged channel that helps us bring you the best productions. This Lot 947 is sweet with a good fruity quench and a nice mellow structure to highlight the stone fruit accents. We could even detect a slight mixiang (honey aroma) character that will become more prominent with time as the tea mellows. We are quite proud of this nice find and can now confidently state that it will please the many fans of this tea.
