Product Description **Premium hand-picked black tea from Sun Moon Lake, called Assam Tea (Taiwan #8) ** TTES NO.8 (Taiwan #8), a tea variety improved from one called Jaipuri from India. TTES NO.8 was propagated by TRES (Tea Research and Extension Station), and planted at latitude 38° 5' , altitude of 800m in Sun Moon Lake (日月潭) in Yuchi, where has fertile soil, proper temperature, humidity and moisture, prefect environment for planting black tea all in all. ** Sweet and smooth. Sumptuous taste with a natural flavor of ripe fruit and malt. ** Our Assam tea was planted in a natural garden which insists on pesticide-free, although the quantity is limited, the quality is maintained in a high level by hand-pick. Unlike the cheap as chip black tea, you don’t need to worry about the astringent taste in our tea. Malty and fruity aroma dominates the tasting notes, with a textured liquid. The texture is notably thick and sumptuous, with a clean sugarcane sweetness that coats the tongue evenly and has a long-lasting aftertaste. This tea is heavier than TTES NO.18, which is also one of the most famous black teas called Ruby. It makes this Assam tea goes well with milk, if you like some milk tea, no doubt this is the top choice for you. **History of Taiwan Assam tea (TTES NO.8) ** This variety was first planted by Japanese colonists in 1925. They introduced large leaf variety Assam to Puli, Shueili and Yuchi. With moderate temperature and rainfall here, the environment is quite suitable for tea. Consequently, the quality of tea turned out pretty good, and the tea industry of Sun Moon Lake region was then unveiled. Interestedly, the tea is so good that used to served Japanese emperor. The tea industry here reached a peak in 1940, exported over 7,000 tons every year. Unfortunately, due to some culture and policy changed after 50 years, the tea cultivation declined. Well, however, the still high desired of this tea makes it even more valuable now. **How to brew with tea bags** Using tea bags keep things simpler. To ensure releasing the full flavor of the tea leaves, we choose tea bags in shape of pyramid (so that they have enough space for stretching out). Using our whole-leaf pyramidal tea bags make brewing easy and simple. If you’re making a single cup of tea, add one bag to your cup or glass. If you’re brewing a pot of tea, add two or more, depending on how strong you like it. Enjoy high quality tea when-and-wherever you like!
