Sweet and minty. Light like a Qi Hong black but with so much more character. So aromatic it tastes like it’s been infused with Indian spices and fresh blossoms. The second and third infusion are still just as potent. At four infusions the flavors begin to mellow and I feel more of the dry back-of-the-throat effect.
Sun Moon Lake
In the early days, Taiwan imported broad leaf black tea from India and selected Nantou County for plantation. Nantou county has the proper climate with plenty of rain and humidity, which creates a suitable environment for cultivation. Sun Moon Lake Black Tea is in the broad category, the appearance is long and loosely thin. The tea color is clear and vivid red, and the taste is sweet and mellow with a hint of natural floral aroma. The aroma and taste of Sun Moon Lake Black Tea can definitely measure up to with Black Tea from India and Sri Lanka.
