"This tea is a real winner in my book!" - Sororitea Sisters

Our Formosa Assam is a highest quality Black Tea grown in the amazing mountainous climate of Sun-Moon Lake in Central Taiwan. It's a great breakfast tea but smooth and delightful enough for all-day economical luxury.  These leaves can be re-steeped many times and our family drinks this delicious tea all year long!  

We've been supporting Mr. Luo and his wife Ms. Lee for many years now.  They are a wonderful hospitable couple and a please to work with.  In our opinion, they grow the best tea in the region.  Their farm sits just just a few minutes drive from the lake.  The plants for this Assam varietal are 20 years old and very healthy with nice thick roots.  They don't use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides but the farm is not certified organic.   Interestingly this plot is covered with 40 year old binglang trees that provide shade protecting the tea plants from the harsh Taiwanese Summer sun.  These farm pictures were taken in Dec. 2022.  The plants are at a point where he's getting ready to trim the plants back allowing for new growth for the Spring harvest in April 2023. 

Notes: Malt, Fruit, Earth and Molasses.
