Terroir and Tea

The Brouwer Garos Black tea originates from the Taiwanese County of Nantou. The tea tree from which it is grown is a special variety following from 50 years of research and consists of a mix between Assam tea from Myanmar with native wild tea trees. This Black tea has long, sturdy, twisted leaves, and looks like a fine tight cord, with a black-purple color

Taste and aroma

This black tea has a bright reddish-amber colored liquor, with a fresh fruity and cinnamon scent. The strong taste of natural cinnamon gently evolves into a cool flavor of garden mint

Terroir and Tea

Our tea is grown at a height of 2000 meters on the Lishan Mountain. The tea is surrounded by mist all year. The mountain has large temperature differences between day and night, and has little sunshine with occasional windy drafts. Because the tea is grown at such a high altitude, the leaves are very thick and do not taste bitter, in contrast to other black teas

Taste and aroma

The body of this tea is strong, but the taste is very smooth. The fragrance is very strong and long lasting and is full of fruits with resemblances to the sweet scent of the Muscat grape and wine. The tea is sweet and mellow with the taste of ripe fruit and a strong honey flavor

Terroir and Tea

Our native wild tea trees were not planted, but found when the forest was cleared to plant tea gardens. The quality of the tea that is made from these rare bushes, is yet another confirmation of the Taiwan’s truly distinctive contribution and legacy

Taste and aroma

The tea of our Native Black has a fruity, gentle and smooth taste with pleasant hints of citrus and wild rose

Terroir and Tea

This tea is from large leafed wild tea trees and highly oxidised. Afterwards the tea undergoes a multiple year aging process in clay jars buried underground. Multiple roasts over the years keep this tea delicate. Due to this process the tea can have numerous infusions

Taste and aroma

The tea is extremely smooth and due to the aging process in underground clay jars feels like drinking straight whiskey without the alcohol. It has exceptionally soft and pleasant roasting flavour at the ouset which evolves in a woody taste and in the aftertaste there is a surge of sweetness which again evolves multiple times. Of extraordinary elegance
