drank Ruby #18 by A Southern Season
1798 tasting notes

I wanted to do a side by side comparison of the two Ruby teas. They are very different, but have some similarities. The aroma of Ruby #18 is very fruity. Steeped, it is a lighter cup than Black Ruby. This one is lighter in flavor notes as well compared to the deep dark fruity fig notes I got from Black Ruby. I don’t know about Black Ruby, but even if you forget to time your Ruby #18 it will not get bitter. I should know – I left a second steep accidentally once and decided to try it, and it was still wonderful. I read online that you can steep it for six minutes on the first steep, and it will not suffer any bitterness. Paul, I am sending some of this your way to get your opinion. You should have it by this afternoon. Just kidding! I don’t know if we can count on the USPS being as fast this time!

The only way you could get that to me faster is if you had a time machine. Seriously, one day across country using regular post?!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
