This Teas of Taiwan Gift Box contains the following Taiwanese teas:
Qing Xin Gan Zi is a uniquely floral green tea from Taiwan that is harvested in early spring from the Qing Xin Gan Zi sub-varietal. Large twisted leaves produce a bright, highly aromatic liquor. The clean vegetal flavours have pronounced fruity, floral and sweet notes.
Four Seasons Oolong is a very floral lightly oxidised oolong from Mingjian Township in Nantou County, Taiwan. Tightly rolled leaves produce a bright light liquor with a lovely honeysuckle fragrance. The flavour profile is smooth and light, with a taste that is floral and sweet with a slightly creamy finish.
Organic Milk Oolong is an award-winning tea grown from a ‘Jin Xuan’ cultivar in Mingjian Township, Nantou County, Taiwan. This tea is not flavoured but has a natural mild milky aroma, mouthfeel and taste. The clean liquor has light and sweet notes of cream and almonds.
Gui Fei Oolong is an award-winning exquisite and rare high mountain oolong from Taiwan. The leaves of this ‘beauty tea’ are nibbled by little green leaf hoppers. This results in a supremely unique wild honey flavour, with sweet, floral and woody notes.
Deep Baked GABA Oolong is an award-winning tea grown and processed in Taiwan for high content of the GABA molecule. It has been heavily roasted, so it has a comforting toasty and nutty flavour with a tart fruity edge.
Yuchi Red Jade is a highly distinctive black tea from the shores of Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. Long twisted leaves of this Hong Yu cultivar produce a dark amber liquor. This is a complex tea, with clean, thick, savoury flavours and fruity notes of mint and eucalyptus.
