From TheTea

Origin: ca. 350 m. above sea level, Ming Jian, Nantou county, Taiwan,

Harvest: October 2023

Cultivar/Tree Variety: Red Jade / Ruby 18 / TTES. 18 / Hong Yu

Classic, organic Ruby Black tea from our friend’s garden.

Taiwan Tea Experimental Station spent over 50 years perfecting the breeding program in order to release this cultivar in 2003.

This is a unique cultivar created from an existing Taiwan native cultivar crossed with an Assam cultivar from Burma. The main feature of well made Ruby black tea is the flavour – with strong menthol and camphor and olibanum notes mixed with vibrant tannic mouthfeel and long, cooling aftertaste.

Please use boiling water and a little bit less leaves than you usually use (recommended 4,5g/100ml).

One could say that this tea is more aromatic than flavourful, but really it is of hig hquality overall.

Dry leaves smell very pungent with notes of malt, sawdust, eucalyptus, and tomato vine. During the session, I can additionally detect a smell like chicken meat.

The mouthfeel is smooth and oily and a little astringent. Taste is bitter with flavours of citrus fruits, tree bark, and nectarines.
