It is definitely the most luxury tasting I’ve ever made!!!
2013 Nantou Global TeaExpo from 5th, Oct., 2013 ~27th, Oct., 2013 is holding a “Golden Tasting” event, offering 17 different exquisite Taiwanese teas to taste, 10 teas per time, only cost NTD100. It makes a pretty good deal…
This exceptional tea knows how to make a frist impression, with delicate, long twisted leaves with a few golden tips, a fragrance reminiscent of wet wood, wicker, berries, and more fruity/honeyed notes as the leaves get moistened. The deep copper brew has a pleasant velvety texture and just enough astringency to balance out the sweetness. Lingering aromas of lychees, blackberries, peaches with malty undertones combine towards a fresh, menthol finish. Brilliant!
This one is also made by the valuable hand plucked tea leaves from Chi-Lai Mountain in Taiwan (the one with the most lengdary tales among the mountains in Taiwan), and processed by the hand of a true tea artisan, Mr. Lee Ming Zheng. Its lower oxidation level makes it look green in color, and indicate a slim liquor body as well as a delicate fragrance to be sensed in the following taste. If you like high mountain teas from Taiwan, such as DYL tea, you gotta try this one!
