Product code: CSTN-131

Here's a nice black tea from Taiwan that is sure to appeal! The leaves of this twisted black tea come from Ali Shan. As the name suggests (literally black tea with honey aroma), generous warm aromas of honey, ripe fruit and flowers emanate from the infusion. Its liquor has a sweetness of baked pastry with notes from biscuit to molasses and cinnamon. What a treat !
