Add to my notebook

Produced in Mucha near the capital of Taiwan, this tea has typically been cooked 60 hours before being aged for over 20 years.

These two processes are involved in changing the color of the leaves and the liquor (reddish brown), and for the transformation of the characteristic aromas.

Woody notes (bark), fruit (dried fruit) and roasted/toasted (tobacco, toast) alternate to a mineral and sweet finish.
