    • "This tea is a real winner in my book!" - Sororitea Sisters
    • This is a Highest Quality delicious Assam Black Tea grown in the amazing mountainous climate of Sun-Moon Lake in Central Taiwan. Interestingly, it was first planted by Japanese colonists around the turn of the last century with mother plants from Burma.
    • This is a great breakfast tea but it's also smooth and delightful enough for all-day economical luxury.  These leaves can be re-steeped many times!  Milk is not normally recommended* but we make boba milk tea with this sometimes... and it's delicious.
    • We're thrilled to have this delicious Black Tea from Mrs. Lee and her husband, a wonderful and hospitable couple. In our opinion, they grow the best tea in the region.
    • Notes: Malt, Fruit, Earth and Molasses. 
    • *Milk was traditionally added to nullify the dry throat that low quality, poorly processed black teas produced.  Good quality tea like this is thrist quenching so we don't recommend milk normally.
