Description: Neither black tea nor oolong tea, it's the best kept secret hybrid tea of Taiwan! This tea releases natural strong honey aromas that can only be created with help from tea farmer's both loathed and loved tea grasshopper. It lacks the bitterness yet retains the bold smoothness of black tea with an addition of oolong tea's depth and elegance. Honey Scented Black Tea softly wakes you up in the morning and the prominent honey aroma will pair perfectly with your afternoon sweet desserts.
Named "Honey Fragrance" tea in Taiwan (Mixiang Hongcha), this tea style brews up notes of honey and cinnamon. It is one of Taiwan's famous "Bug-Bitten Teas" and well worth an annual pilgrimage.
Taste: Rich, caramelly, fruity, smooth and naturally sweet. Delicious tea for hot or cold brew.
Preparing this tea is easy like prepping your breakfast toast. Put 2 tablespoon (3 grams) into your small tea pot (we recommend Gaiwan). Use 90~95 C water and steep for 2 minutes. Repeat steeping for 2 times increasing the steep time each time.
