From Gong Fu Tea Shop

This wonderful Black Tea comes to us as a result of our Fall 2008 buying trip to Taiwan. Tea masters there have imported growing stock from India’s fabled Assam tea-growing region and established a tea garden in the south of the island that now produces a rich yet mild brew unlike any other tea that we have ever experienced…

I had this at the shop today, iced. I was trying to decide if I needed to buy some of it to take home. I ended up deciding not to. It was good, but I wasn’t sure if I loved it 2 ounces and $20 worth.

It was more fermented tasting than most teas I’ve had. Not malty so much as fermented. It wasn’t a bad thing by far. It gave the tea a sweetness and mellowed it out. I didn’t pick up any smoke, which was good. :) It was rich and thick feeling, even iced. If it had been available in 1 ounce or less expensive, I might well have come home with some.

This is a subtle style of black tea that hails from an oolong dominated region yet is varietally of the Indian Assam strain. It is worth mentioning because this tea embodies much of the Assam boldness with a subdued tannic smokiness and light floral note characteristic of oolong. I will have to come back to this tea for another cupping before going into much more detail. Intriguing and very much worth the time!
