From Teas we like

This is a spring 2020 production of a native Taiwanese black tea varietal from relatively old and large trees in Liugui, Kaohsiung (around 1900m). There are two productions per year, in spring and autumn, and this is the more desirable picking. This is an exceptional example of Taiwanese gushu black tea, and we were not able to get more than 2kg this year.

The liquor has a pungent sweet aroma with notes of grape must, artichoke heart, and caramel. Velvety texture, sweetness that expands from the tongue to the rear of the mouth, transitioning to a long-lasting sweet finish. Excellent durability from the visibly high quality material.

Right off the bat this is one of the thickest blacks I have had. The nose is floral but the taste is much more fruity and creamy, with undertones of cinnamon and sea salt, and a bit of Ruby 18-style mintiness. There’s some noticeable astringency, and the finish is long and dry. The flavor dies off earlier that I would have hoped, but the texture remains strong. At 50 cents a gram I can’t quite say it’s worth the money, but it’s at least quite a nice tea.
