The prestigious heritage of Yuchih Black Tea
In 1925, the Japanese brought various types of black tea (including the Assam black tea) to Taiwan to be grown in Yuchih Township of Nantou County. Due to the special characteristics of the local environs that made it an ideal place for black tea to be grown, Yuchih black tea soon became world famous and has been ranked as the highest grade of black tea at the London Tea Auction. It was even served to the Japanese Emperor at the time.
At present, the types of black tea grown in Yuchih include: Assam Black Tea, TTC_TTES No. 8 Black Tea, Ruby Assam Black Tea (TTC_TTES No. 18 Black Tea) and natural tea trees. The Ruby Assam Black Tea (TTC_TTES No. 18 Black Tea) in particular has a natural fragrance of cinnamon with a slight hint of mint. This enchanting aroma is from the wild mountain tea and its distinctive flavor will grow on you after a sip. The special traits of Ruby Assam Black Tea have made it one of a kind among renowned black teas around the world and its reputation as a top class black tea is well deserved.
