Description

Our Assam "Black beauty" #8 is organically grown and produced in beautiful Taiwan. Assam Black Beauty is a distinct and highly appealing tea with a smooth richness of taste that is simply unsurpassed. With natural hints of cream, honey and bourbon! This tea is deliciously malty with notes of raisin and stone fruit. This is a tea that is very smooth, rich in character and deliciously deep! You will notice that the flavor is not nearly as brisk as a traditional Indian Assam, but almost has dark oolong characteristics.

Black tea crafting in Taiwan was initiated by the Japanese in 1903. In 1926, the first Assam cultivar was introduced and planted around the hills of Sun Moon Lake in Nantou County. This lake's climate, environment, and terroir was deemed the most similar to the Assam tea gardens of India. Today, Sun Moon Lake produces the majority of Taiwan's black tea between three distinct cultivars: a pure-stock Assam, a native indigenous cultivar, and a hybrid cultivar named #8!

Enjoy the full smooth flavor of our luxury ssam Black Beauty #8!

This one really deserves the 5 star rating. I'm paranoid that one day it won't be available, so i buy extra when i order. The price initially almost scared me away, but i'm glad that i splurged and got it. Being addicted to this tea only proves how much of a tea lover you are. The taste is smooth, not bitter or tannic at all. more like a sweet (vanilla) tobacco aftertaste.

Tealyra's "Black Beauty" #8 is quite simply the most delicious tea I've ever had. Smooth, fragrant (even the dry tea is fragrant), and very drinkable! [NOTE: I do wonder if Tealyra has erred in this teas pedigree, though, as the hybrid they describe (of a pure-stock Assam and a native indigenous cultivar) more accurately describes what is known as Red Jade #18. According to Teapedia, the variety known as TTES #8 is an Assamica varietal from Jaipur, India.] Well... whatever it is, Tealyra is calling it Black Beauty and I love it!
