From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Refined by the Taiwan Research and Extension Station, this TRES No. 8 Assamica strand presents itself as a large, wonderfully curled and lustrous full leaf; reminiscent of the best Bao Zhongs or Wuyi style oolongs. A wonderfully fruity aroma emanates from the cup that evokes stewed cherries and apricot jam. In the cup, one experiences a round, fruity sweetness that is quite heady and very refreshing. A warm velvety yet full body satisfies the palate and withstands the test of a dash of milk. This is not a tea that is as thick and bold as an Indian Assam. It has a sophisticated exuberance that makes it exotically satisfying, it is a “must try” tea for all English style tea drinkers… and oolong drinkers alike!

I mixed it up again tonight after going on about what specific straight black teas I most enjoy to Alexa. Yum, assam!

This one turned out perfectly. I have a real love of TTC, just from the one small order I placed with them months back.

The tea is rapidly cooling now, and tasting even better. More sweetness is coming through, with subtle stonefruits, and maybe even some hay. Delightful.

Farewell delicious tea! Hopefully i’ll be able to pick up a little more of this one before the lot sells out…i think that i prefer the yuchi in this run but this one is still an excellent taiwan fruity delicious tea.

Yeahhhhhhhh… had this a few more times, and I think I might even like it more than my other TTC love – Yuchi Wild Mountain Black.

It smells SO amazing, like raisins and honey and malt. And the taste is equally as potent! It never ceases to blow my mind how something this flavourful and delicious just came out of the ground at some point.

When I think about which tea I want at night, TTC is winning, lately. I am trying to force myself to drink other teas to knock my cupboard down some in order to justify the giant TTC order I’d love to place one day.

Dreams do come true!

Watch me… I’m about to rate this………… 100.



if you DO place a giant order, there’s no discount on the larger sizes so you may want to get 4 25g bags for example versus 1 100g bag since they’re not resealable heh.


Wishlisted :O
