From Zi Chun Tea Co

A high quality organic black tea – this unique tea was developed & refined by the Taiwan tea research station. It is a cross between an Assam strain from Burma & a local wild strain. A truly great tea.
A noticeable cinnamon aroma and carries a subtle, but pleasant mint flavor.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!

It is awesome! Definitely one of the very best black teas I’ve ever tasted. I think this may even be better than Dawn from Simple Leaf! It has some of the cocoa tones of Dawn, and it is incredibly rich. Sweet and bold. Malty. Incredible. YUM!


sounds great!


It is… it appears that the only way it’s available is to purchase a Kilo of it… I’m thinking about buying the kilo after the holidays, and repackaging into 2 ounce packages to sell on Tea Trade……


Or you could swap…:))….


Clever! I Heart Teas does the same, it is you yes? Keen Thyme tea was announcing specials form several re-packagers of tea and I Heart Teas was amongst those noted.


@ScottTeaMan: uh… no, not at the price I’d have to pay to get a Kilo.


It is pricey, and up to you, of course, but You dont have to give it ALL away. :))

Gosh I LOVE this tea! I only have a very little bit left after this cuppa. The naturally cinnamony, chocolatey, notes are amazing! The malty-ness is RIGHT ON! YUM!

Additional notes: Sipdown! I think that might be the first time I get to say that. There was a bit left in a not-very-sealed package. Somehow this was completely different from the last cup. It was much more like a black tea instead of anything like asparagus. I actually forgot I thought it tasted like that, but the flavor is much more how I wanted it to be! Nice! It’s more sweet malty with a bit of cocoa this time. I have no idea why the flavor changed so much. Maybe because I had similar teas for the first time since I first tried this one? I’m going to miss this one! I’m uping the rating!
