This is one of the smoothest black teas, ever. I'm not sure if I've ever tried a Burmese cultivar, let alone a Burmese cultivar grown in Taiwan. :) Matt does a great job of finding rare teas that are truly special. This would make a great daily drinker for those friends who still haven't moved beyond tea bag powder and need a gentle nudge towards whole leaf. Bittersweet cacao morphs into dark tannic fruits that make me want to keep sipping throughout the morning. Very cozy vibe during these cold winter months in the U.S.
