Description

Our Assam "Black beauty" #8 is organically grown and produced in beautiful Taiwan. Assam Black Beauty is a distinct and highly appealing tea with a smooth richness of taste that is simply unsurpassed. With natural hints of cream, honey and bourbon! This tea is deliciously malty with notes of raisin and stone fruit. 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 dark 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 majority of Taiwan's black tea between three distinct cultivars: a pure-stock Assam, a native indigenous cultivar, and a hybrid cultivar named #8!

Enjoy the full smooth flavor of our luxury ssam Black Beauty #8!

I'm in love with this tea. I could barely believe that it isn't artifically scented - so strong is the aroma.

One of the smoothest assam tea I have tasted - creamy and light. So happy to have come across this tea, highly recommend it and am buying it again.
