“Tea sampling for free!” wandering for a standard black tea here in crowded Sun Moon Lake,
it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack without any acquaintance.
Mr. Chen’s smile laid a warm impression to me:
“Our black tea goes back to grandpa’s generation! It traces back three generations since Japanese Occupation period,”
“Grandpa’s tea sold all the way to Europe, people would comment that Taiwan Black Tea tastes smoother than Assam.”
The shyness was obvious when talking about his father and grandfather.
Like other young men, Mr. Chen used to dream big into the world,
however when realized how age has worn out his father, he settled for the future of family tea.
“It would be fascinating to see this tea garden online!” I smiled lighter than Mr. Chen in his tea garden,
such environment has cultivated annual awarded teas:
shorter sunlight duration than other Nantou region; fertile soil and modest rain make it a rare treasure land.
“Another beauty for the world.”
Machine well-functioning in the tea factory, harmonizing with the glazing gold of finished tealeaves under sunset.
Made from old Assam maternal branch,
Mr. Chen’s black tea has firm stem and leaves are thick and soft,
both naturally even in color that is glossy dark brown,
creating tea soup of bright red, and leaving the finished teacup glittering in floral fragrance.
“This is definitely not the black teas I’ve tasted!” I’m astonished by the cup.
Mr. Chen proudly said, “That is the reason why I came back, to pass it on!”
We smiled, with an unspoken understanding.
Yes, such tea deserves a fighter’s stay, deserves never ending sharing.
“It deserves a better knowing.” Mr. Chen told me firmly after tea garden tour.
There, we are reaching a wonderful consensus.
For we both realize that globalization makes a smooth way for the best tealeaf to global market,
for we are confident in originated tea gardens that doesn’t blindly follow the fast pace era,
and thus we are the best choice.
Sun Moon Lake Black Tea enjoys a worldwide fame, while Honey Black Tea never weights less;
however our Black Tea,
from tea breed chosen strictly by Assam Dai tribe to three generations of Chen taking care of,
has greater details in today’s accomplishment.
Like Sun in the milkyway, this tea shines through all the fame of Sun Moon Lake.
If you haven’t tried any Sun Moon Lake Black Tea and got no idea where it comes from,
among all the world class teas, this is the must try for you – DAI RUBY BLACK TEA.
