Also from my trip to Taiwan, I brought back some #18 tea from Assam tea farm which is near Sun-Moon Lake (wwwdotassamfarmdotcom.tw/). Personally I think Assam team farm's #18 is a lot better, a lot more smooth and tastes more "organic". I didn't try these 2 teas under the same brewing setting, so this might not be a fair comparison..
cindyt - Do you know where tea from the Assam tea farm can be purchased other than going to the farm itself- either via internet or in Taiwan? I emailed them in English and limited Mandarin to see if I can purchase directly from them but no response so far. Thanks.
