From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This is possibly the easiest black tea to drink in our selection. It is very distinctive and unique in taste and, might we add, rare! It is made from a wild tea strain indegenous to Taiwan called: Shan Cha (mountain tea). There’s nothing bold or brash about this tea, we are not in the same category as powerful assams. This is a subtle charming tea, yet extremely satisfying, with a good body and with surprising stamina! The taster will be greeted with a pleasant aroma of baked oats with buttered sweetness and a discreet floral note of wild rose will charm the nose as soon as the leaves are heated by the boiling water. The liqueur is all smoothness with a light refreshing quench. The taste is all pleasant and round with evocations of pastries and baked sweets with fruit compote notes similar to japanese white peaches. This October 2019 production proposes an intriguing yet subtle spicy character that hints on anise and cinnamon. What surprises the palate is the inviting suppleness of this tea that makes you want to drink cup after cup after cup. If black is not your usual cup, this is the tea that will convert you! This is a must try tea! This very fresh Lot will improve with time and be at its peak during the winter of 2020.

Y is for… Yuchi Wild Mountain Black, Lot 864

Thank you Sil for sharing!

This one is good. At first I was like this is super jammy and sweet. But then as I kept drinking I was getting more fresh baked bread. Maybe sweet potato that’s slightly caramelized. Whatever it was, it was delicious! Yum!

Courtney

Looove this one, so glad you got to enjoy it as well! :)

Sil

it’s consistently delicious. I’ll let you know when/if i order more…likely be a large bulk order

Leafhopper

Cannot believe i’m so far in to the 250g of this i bought. Seriously. Wtf. I think covid has me drinking way more tea than before. Thankfully this is a good one.

Courtney

I drink 250g of this every year XD. I’s my only ‘annual order’ hahaha.

Sil

courtney – i hear you..but like i received the 250g in october and assuming i had all of oct, nov, dec to drink it (3 months) i went from 250g to 140. sooooo at this rate i could be needing another 250g lol.

Sil

never mind the oher tea i had vast quantities of that i’ve since mostly sipped down. ugh. covid = tea drinking crazy!

Courtney

Hahaha, I understand completely! Yeah, I have to ration a bit because I refuse to do more than one order/year XD. Covid really has me drinking tea like crazy too — I feel like the kettle is constantly on.

It’s 6a here and I’ve completed my ecology exam! I have to submit my final ecology paper today as well and I’m just putting the finishing touches on the APA formatting. Next up, the peatlands final paper due next week. Woot, almost there! Buuuut before peatlands, I’m starting work early today, so I can finish early and watch the all the new Star Wars films back to back haha!

I woke up at 4:15a to get a shower and make tea so I could be as refreshed as possibly at such an early hour and of course I made my all-time favourite: Yuchi WMB. I can’t say enough good about this tea, it will be in my cupboard as long as it exists! It’s just perfect in every single way and never disappoints. The sweetness with the breadiness and a hint of malt is just such a perfect combination.

Congrats to you my dear! Sounds like you are almost there. And treating yourself with Star Wars. . I mean doesn’t get much better :)

Cameron B.

Yay, congrats! I’m on my way over for Star Wars night! ;)

Martin Bednář

Congratulations! We all have some tea which is supposed to be a staple in our cupboards, don’t we?

Courtney

Thanks! Hahah, Cameron! We’re in a lockdown, but we can totally do a Zoom Star Wars!

Courtney

We really do Martin! It’s important to have those ones for the days you really need them, and the days you don’t for that matter!

My son is a Sandtrooper in the 501st! My godson is an Imperial Gunner. Needless to say, it is a house full of Star Wars fans here, except for Youngest who has never really been into it, her heart belongs to vintage Doctor Who.
