**From what we consider our 'home base' farm here on the east coast of Taiwan we are happy to offer a Daily Drinker version of our Honey Fragrance Black Tea. As with all teas, there are different grades and corresponding prices. This tea is a tea that if you haven't had the higher grades of Honey Fragrance Black Tea you would think it was a premium tea. The honey notes are there, the smoothness, the lack of strong bitterness and astringency but the tea isn't quite as sweet as the more expensive stuff and there is a woodier, deeper feel to it. Far from unpleasant, and if you like that style of tea, a huge opportunity for a deal to be had! Also, this tea matched with the 'normal' Honey Fragrance Black Tea is a great taste comparison to learn more about how teas are graded that helps a lot in the tea journey.**
This beautiful, delicate tea has been bitten by the green leaf hopper early enough in the season to create the sensual sweet honey notes that the name implies. These teas need to be grown in an organic environment to allow the bugs freedom to bite the young tea buds to produce this classic tea. The east coast of Taiwan consistently produces the best of the best Honey Fragrance Black Tea and our partner farm is famous for its consistent wins in the annual tea competitions.
**Like all our teas, there are no added flavors, colors or chemicals in this tea. All flavors are completely natural and chemical-free!**
