This Taiwanese black tea comes from Yu Chi in Nantou. It is made from the TTES 18 cultivar, which is the result of a cross between an assamica tea plant and an endemic tea plant. This cultivar provides aromatic complexity and a fine tannic structure.

A Grand Cru with a uniform texture that is rich in aromas. It releases intense, complex notes that are honeyed, wooden, camphor and fruity.
