Honey Black Formosa Black Tea

Tasting Notes: Malty, Floral, Velvety

This exquisite and unique Taiwanese black tea has a luxurious malty flavor that is at the same time floral with hints of honeyed sweetness. It also has naturally occurring notes of Osmanthus that come through with undertones of sweet nectar-like, honey. There is a complexity to the tea that offers delicate earthy qualities that are mellow enough to remind you more of oolong than black tea. Experience the nuances of flavors with multiple steepings and discover the sophistication of the brew.

Fun Facts:

Hualien, in the East Rift Valley, is the last so-called untouched land in Taiwan. Settlers to Taiwan from China brought a complex tea culture, which has been layered upon by the Japanese and further developed by the West, including Portuguese explorers who called the island Formosa. The tea plantations there help to create Taiwan’s intricate, social tea culture.
