Description

San Xia Tea is a unique black tea grown in the Sanxia District of northern Taiwan. Crafted with the same leaves as a traditional green Bi Luo Chun tea, the Qing Xin Gan Zi varietal bud leaves are carefully handpicked every 10-14 days to ensure a young tea. Once harvested, they are processed in a traditional style to create a tea liquor with a fragrant aroma and stone fruit notes with a clean taste.

Once steeped, San Xia Tea offers a sweet aromatic amber liquor, at first sip, you will appreciate the floral astringency, stone fruit sweetness, and clean, refreshing body.

A leaf from the Sanxia District of northern Taiwan, this tea is crafted from the same leaves as a Bi Luo Chun green, and picked when the leaf is young. The dry leaf is long, twisty and black with twinges of maroon and a touch of gold.  The dry leaf certainly has a fruity fragrance!  And in a blind taste test, I would certainly guess this is a Taiwanese tea.  It's very close in appearance and flavor to Premium Taiwanese Assam.  An explosion of lingering mouth feel, very fruity.  That lychee again, but also strawberries.  A bit of a drying mouth quality.  Second steep, it tastes more like a Ruby 18 varietal.  The third steep seemed a bit weak and not sure if it was worth a third steep, mostly tasted like a faint Ruby 18.  The first steep was definitely the best.  Maybe I needed to rein in the steeps to recreate that first cup of amazing flavor.It's odd this tea is VERY similar in flavor to the other black tea from Tealyra I had the other day, the Wen Shan Bao Zhong black.
