Many tea enthusiasts have tried the very popular Pouchong oolong teas from northern Taiwan, but how many have tried the black style that is currently being produced at PT Harendong Green Farm located in the Halimum Mountains of Indonesia? If you have not tried it yet, I implore you to do so.
The aroma of the dry leaves is very fragrant, with sweet, spicy, and woody scents. The liquor is colorful with a clean brightness to it. The aroma of the liquor has scents of baked apple, cinnamon, brown sugar, and wood. The taste is crisp and satisfying, with a nice balance of light green apple, lemon, spice, and mineral. There is also a nice brisk character, and an unusually sweet aftertaste.
If you are looking for a break from the typical black teas of Sri Lanka, China, or India, give the Indonesia Pouchong Black a try. It will rejuvenate your passion for black tea.
