Taiwan is an island near China. Although mountainous, its climate conditions make it ideal for farming. Many Taiwanese have either Chinese and/or original tribal heritage, and the countries main languages are Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese. This tea is uniquely produced with a mixture of local Taiwanese tea cultivar and Burmese tea cultivar. The leaves were picked by hand. Its smell is like light lotus and cinnamon which is uniquely produced in Taiwan. Read more in our blog.

‘Samurai’ Traveling Teabox – Tea #17
It’s always a joy getting to the end of trying teabox teas.  I LOVE teaboxes and the wealth of teas I’m able to try… but equally great is knowing I’ll be back to my tea collection and revisiting my favorites, ESPECIALLY with my new sink water filter so I can be steeping with excellence.    Both my collection and the teaboxes make me appreciate each other even more.   The teaboxes reinvigorate my collection — happens every time. I love it.
This was not the best to end the teabox note on… I usually love Ruby varietals but this had little to no flavor of most of the Ruby teas I’ve ever tried.  Really just nothing to mention!  They are usually quite complex to me, so this is certainly not the Ruby to base anyone’s opinion on.
