From Red Blossom Tea Company

Traditional Assams from India are rich, deep, and often times astringent. Taiwan’s terroir removes this astringent edge, resulting in a tea that is rich and complex, with notes of fruit and honey, but without the bite one would expect from an Indian Assam.

I’m not a fan of Indian Assams, so I was excited to try this Formosa version to see if it could turn me around. It did. Gone is the disgusting bitter astringency of the Indian variety. What’s the left is a smooth, delicious Assam that is all you could hope for. There’s not much else to say. It’s a big favorite of mine for the first cup of the day.

Flavors: Fruity, Honey
