From Shui Tea

Known as Experimental Tea #18, this extraordinary tea is a hybrid cultivation of wild tea plants growing around Sun Moon Lake in the mountains of central Taiwan. This pure tea has a natural fragrance of cinnamon and mint, and a distinctive earthy and malty flavor. The taste deepens, sip after sip.

The tea plants around Sun Moon Lake were originally planted by the Japanese in the 1920’s. The Assamese tea plants grown were intended to become a source of export revenue. Wars broke out, and the tea plants were forgotten and grew wild. In recent years, the Taiwan government has worked with local tea farmers to re-cultivate the plants.

Their success has led to one of the most delicious and unique black tea in the world. Taiwan Ruby is creamy and smooth without aftertaste or bitterness. The taste develops as you drink it. If tea could sweep you off your feet and leave you feeling dizzy with love, this would be the tea to do it.
