Our Discovery Tea Sampler Tins are designed to introduce tea enthusiasts to a specific style or family of Taiwanese teas, in this case: Unique and Rare Taiwanese Black Teas. Black teas are undergoing a true revival in Taiwan. Not as a commodity grade tea like it was under the Japanese occupation, but as a value-added meticulously made full-leaf tea in the true spirit of the Taiwanese Gong Fu Tea Culture. This has prompted many producers to explore new avenues in tea-making techniques and experiment with different cultivars. This sampler set proposes a selection of 4 teas chosen from our current catalogue with an emphasis on our freshest new arrivals. Each tea is made from a different cultivar with one borrowing from ball-rolled style oolong techniques. The results are bold, diverse and fresh and are well-worth investigating.
This sampler tin includes the following teas in 10 g formats, each vacuum-sealed in their individual bag with de-oxidizer to preserve freshness and packed in our New Woven Fabric Tea Caddie.
