Emilio del Pozo is a Taiwan-based artist how makes who makes some stunning teaware. You can see his work and purchase pieces here.
Emilio also has a deep passion for Taiwanese teas, and he has recently decided to start an online teashop and sell his favourite teas. Today, I’m trying his Red Jade, a Taiwanese black tea that makes a powerful first impression with its beautiful full leaves and strong aroma.
This is one of the fruitiest teas I’ve ever tried. The aroma and flavour sing of berry-like notes. I largely rate Taiwanese black teas by their aftertaste – some have nice headnotes and body but the astringency of the finish and aftertaste are unpleasant. This tea is excellent from start to finish, and I believe it could appeal to those who take their tea without milk and seek a nice afternoon tea
