From Mariage Frères

The lake of the Sun and the Moon, in Nantou County in central Formosa, is a top destination for young newlyweds, lured by its entrancing, emerald beauty. The surrounding forests also harbour several small tea estates where an exceptional black tea is cultivated.
Leaves: wide, stretched and slightly twisted
Nose: forthright, with chocolate undertones
Liquor: amber-red liquor with ample body, profuse and velvety, with bold candied aromas of malt, cacao, and brown sugar crowned by a rich tone of almond during a remarkable finish. A strong yet finessed harvest.

6 months.It didn’t take me so long to buy this one… I only managed to resist 6 months before entering Mariage Frères and ask for 50 g of Sun Moon Lake at the desk.
I loved all the Sun Moon Lake teas I have tasted and in general I have a kind of passion for Taiwanese teas, blacks and Oolongs.
I however just love the poetic name of this area’s teas, it sounds so romantic.

The dry leaves are so long and include golden tips, so lovely. They smell woody and roasty.
I use a mug and an infuser and after 3 minutes steeping I can already see a so dark colour that I decide to shorten the steeping.
It’s a medium bodied black tea exactly as I love them with the typical notes of honey, fresh baked bread and candied fruits I appreciate in Taiwanese teas.
On aftertaste, there is something rough but quick, almost mineral but really this is for a short moment and adds a lot of personality t the tea.

I would say this one is a kind of cousin to Butiki’s Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black with a mineral touch.
I do really enjoy it a lot. Just sooo Yummy.

LaFleurBleue sent me some of another sun moon lake oolong and it was soooo excellent. I think I still got some leaves hoarded somewhere.

Ysaurella

yes I had the same one from LaFleurBleue and it was excellent. Unfortunately I don’t have any left. This one is really fantastic as well but a black tea instead of Oolong.
