This honey fragrance tea was added to the site because it is a great example of a classic, sweet and dark bug bitten tea. For good or bad, depending on your own personal tastes, oolong processing methods have crept into Taiwanese black tea processing more and more. This has brought more fruit flavors and general sweetness into many of these teas.
Traditionally processed black teas such as this one have become rare. Dark, strong, malty, sweet -- this tea is throwback to the older ways of making Taiwanese black teas. Rich, cooling and honey sweet, this delicate tea deserves slightly cooler temperatures and careful brewing. Those that take the time will be rewarded with a taste that is slowly being phased out of most modern black teas in Taiwan.
This tea is great for cold brew as well!
