Product code: CSTN-45

Here is a rare black tea from Taiwan, made using the well known T-18 cultivar which is derived from a cross between a large leafed tea from Burma (Ashamu) and a wild tea tree from southern Taiwan.

Infused, its graceful leaves emanate smooth aromas of wintergreen, malt and tobacco. Lightly mentholated and generously fruity with notes of prune and raisin, its liquor is round, full and silky.

A perfect tea for those special mornings.

Mi Xiang Hong Cha

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 !
