In recent years we've seen more and more experimentation with the higher mountain growing areas of Taiwan; different cultivars and processing techniques have given way to a host of options that weren't available in the past. One noteworthy example is high mountain black tea, which has seen a serious boost in popularity in Taiwan.
Made of the Qingxin oolong cultivar, the standard in the world of Taiwanese oolongs, this two-tea set contains two black oolongs from the same farm in Shanlinxi, and differ only in that one is a roasted black tea while the other is unroasted. The sweeter flavors that are present in the oolong cultivar do wonderfully when fully oxidized as a black tea, and the chocolatey, malty notes found here are really quite special. This is a great opportunity for those who are interested in tea processing and want to take a look at the effects of roasting on a tea.
Price is for two vacuum sealed bags (75g each).
