Taiwan Ruby Black, Competition Grade Black Tea, Made In Taiwan
Ruby Black tea takes its name from the color of its liquor, and its Chinese name literally means Red Jade. This is a unique cultivar that you can still only find in Taiwan. It has flavors of cinnamon and peppermint, pairs well with afternoon cake and doubles as a digestif.
This tea is textured with palate cleansing smoothness and a long, lingering finish of wood and sweet orchid. This aroma and flavor are regarded in the Far East as Taiwan Xiang, or Taiwan Fragrance, and it has achieved worldwide recognition.
Our selection is from an organic farm near Sun Moon Lake, and we chose it from other Ruby Blacks for its deep body and smooth finish. It is vacuum-sealed on site, and comes with a patented tea seal to maintain freshness after first use.
Harvest: Summer 2013

Note: Unlike a British Black Tea, Ruby Black must not be brewed in perfectly boiling water. Rather, let the water cool a few minutes, to about 80 degrees Celsius, or simply cold-brew it. Newly-boiled water will spoil this subtle flavour and turn the tea bitter.
