Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company
NEW ITEM THIS MONTH!
What a smooth tea this is! This tea comes from a farm just above the pristine alpine lake called Sun Moon Lake. It’s hand processed by Mr. Lee and his wife, a wonderful and hospitable couple. They grow without chemicals the old fashioned way. Do you like black teas from India? This tea is similar but has no astringency. It’s a pure stock Assam Black Tea that has been growing in Taiwan since 1926 when the Japanese imperial machine started to foster a tea industry in Taiwan for world-wide export.

This is one of this company’s NEW teas and I must say it’s a GOODIE! Of course – I’m partial to a solid black tea especially in the morning – I usually start each day with a black based tea and then move on to other types of tea throughout the day. Have said that – I REALLY love this tea.
I’ve been hearing a lot of people use the word “Pristine” more and more these days. I’m not sure if it’s a new buzz word or fad or lingo but I try and reserve it for something REALLY special. After reading the product description of this tea and this tea being from a farm about the “pristine” Alpine Lake call Sun Moon Lake of course I had to research it to see if it lived up to the word. And you know what? It DOES! This lake truly IS a gem! It’s marvelously beautiful…and I’ll say it…PRISTINE. After seeing the photographs I can’t image anything ‘bad’ coming from this area. I absolutely believe this tea lives up to the product description.
I LOVE that this grown without the use of chemicals and the old fashioned way. It has no astringency. It’s bold but smooth. It’s sweet, too. For a black based tea I think this has a level of mouth watering and thirst quenching type of sip to it, too! The leaves are fairly large and precise. The aroma is pleasant but not over powering and not dark like most black teas. I can’t think of one thing I don’t like about this tea. It’s a real winner in my book!
