I tried the Red Jade tea and thought it was a far better quality from Tea Needs. They call theirs Ruby Tea. The taste was better and I got 2 more infusions out of the higher quality tea. Of course, it is still Hong Yu. Here is the link if you want to try for yourself. http://www.teaneeds.com/shop/ruby-hong-50gr-p-509.html
Red Jade | Hong Yu
Hong Yu, or Red Jade black tea, is very much gaining in popularity amongst black tea drinkers.
The translation “Hong Yu” in English is mean “Red Jade”. This new Black Tea was found by The Tea Research and Extension Station where located in the hills surrounding Sun Moon Lake has also focused on the development and production of other black teas. The very uniqe fact is the Research and Extension station has created one of the most truly unique and quality black teas in the world. The red jade is a cross between an assam strain from Burma and a local wild tea strain. For the very unique and best tea was made that another good reason is that the place of the origin Yuchih Township is one of the most suitable places for black tea trees to grow.
