 Although these days Taiwan is often associated with semi-fermented Oolongs, the industry there actually began with the development of black tea - teas such as this outstanding Lapsang. Local teas originated from two varieties of wild growing plants, their primary difference being the color of their sprouts. This tea, known as Taiwan Mountain tea had either greenish tending light purple sprouts or purple-red tending fuchsia sprouts. Initially it was thought that neither of these teas were commercially viable. That all changed however when improvements were made to a varietal sub-categorized as Taiwan Tea No. 18 making it suitable for black tea production.

Because of the quality of the fresh leaf used to produce Kangaroo Lapsang, the resulting tea is one of the worlds finest. The flavor is robust, deep, and highly aromatic, filling the mouth with distinctive smoky pine notes. The flavor leads us to another quote, 'The beauty of Taiwan tea resides in the flavor, the clearness of its coloring, the purity of its taste, and the elegance of its aroma.' That being the case, this tea is a true example of the beauty of Taiwan tea.
