Well, I decided to make me a full teapot of this one . This tea as the brand will disappear and I must say that I try to keep it as long as possible because I really love it. Its scheduled disappearance , I consider it as a drama.
Since 2 months I do not drink this tea anymore whereas it brightened all my Sundays or Saturdays mornings. I now have the experience of this tea and it is almost impossible to spoil it . Its whole leaves are so long , dark and bright that I have the same impatience every time to start their infusion.
The simple fact of opening the box where I store Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black is a delight. Its dry smell is just unequalled : dried fruits , honey … it’s an extraordinary fragrance.
And it tastes absolutely wonderful. The first time my daughter tasted in my cup she thought it was a flavoured tea and not a plain tea . And yet for sure nature is full of flavours exacerbated , no need of additives.
Stone fruits are the guests of honor of this tea : apricot, peach, plum . The raisin is not forgotten and honey is flowing freely . Each tasting is both the same and another tea, natural flavors by thousand hide or reveal themselves infusion after infusion.
This tea remains the most greedy, the most decadent , the most opulent I ever drank. Although I think I found his replacement with Taiwan Tea Crafts and its Oriental Beauty Oolong Premium Grade lot 342 , there are still in this unique black tea some tones and notes that the Oolong does not have .
Heartache in perspective.
