This tea was the other highlight of my trip to San Fran. Its not often you find a really good high quality black tea, and Red Ruby delivery. I was able to brew around 15 times in the gaiwan and it still held its flavor and color.
This is a lovely complex black tea with maraschino cherries, and a lovely wintergreen aroma/taste (that I often associate with the Uva region of Sri Lanka).
Well worth its money, this Red Ruby is much better than some black teas I’ve seen trying to pass for Sun Moon Lake.
I brewed a cup of this last night, when I should have been going to bed. I was falling asleep while trying to drink it (and catch up on my self-imposed summer studies). caffeine does not help.
I didn’t get to finish the cup because I finally gave in and went to bed, but I remember that it was tasty. Not overly fruity, malty or sweet, just a very well balanced cup of black tea. I’ll have to try it again when I am more awake. I have enough for a couple more cups, courtesy of Amy oh.
