Description

Our Assam 'Black beauty' #8 is organically grown and produced in beautiful Taiwan. Assam Black Beauty #8 is a distinct and highly appealing tea, with a sweet smooth richness of taste that is unsurpassed. Hints of cream, honey and bourbon, deliciously malty, with notes of raisin and stone fruit notes. This is a tea that is very smooth, rich in character and deliciously deep! You will notice that the flavor is not nearly as brisk as a traditional Indian Assam, but almost has oolong characteristics.

Black tea crafting in Taiwan was initiated by the Japanese in 1903. In 1926, the first Assam cultivar was introduced and planted around the hills of Sun Moon Lake in Nantou County. This lake's climate, environment, and terroir was deemed the most similar to the Assam tea gardens of India. Today, Sun Moon Lake produces the bulk of Taiwan's black tea between three distinct cultivars: a pure-stock Assam, a native indigenous cultivar, and a hybrid cultivar named #8.
