From Mountain Stream Teas

Made by an 70 year old tea master in Pinglin, this rare and slightly sweet black tea is earthy, unpolished and true. Considered the father of organic farming in Taiwan, his garden has been chemical free for many decades and the teas produced there can be sold out years in advance. This tea is a real treat and is a favorite among black tea drinkers for its strength, softness and depth. Great office tea as it stands up very, very well to western style brewing!

I’ve had both this and last year’s Old Master Black, and enjoyed both immensely.
If you are interested in uncommon and unique Blacks this is well worth the (not low) price.

Highly Recommended
