Old-Bush Assamica Red Tea from Sun Moon Lake, Nantou, Taiwan. The terroir of this beautiful area, surrounding the largest body of water in Taiwan, yields the powerful Qi and rich, full flavor of this deep amber tea. The large, healthy leaves are ideal for a bowl, especially during the morning when we are seeking an uplifting, invigorating, opening cha Qi to start the day. This 2018 Sun Moon Lake is particularly full-flavored and sweet, with a pleasant upwardly sweeping Qi. One of our favorite "everyday drinking teas." We particularly love brewing this tea with leaves directly in a bowl, returning to the most fundamental brewing method, just leaves and water. This practice brings us back to the humble beginnings of our tea journey.
