"A very unique black tea from Taiwan called "Sun Moon Lake tea". The enormous twisted leaves have a wiry appearance, reminiscent of a Keemun Mao Feng. The tea is silky smooth without a trace of astringency. The taste is full and somewhat malty, reminiscent of a very smooth Assam tea. Notes of nutmeg and cinnamon are present with a whisper of mint in the finish."
