Also known as Red Jade, Hong Yu, Ruby 18, or Sun Moon Lake. This is one of the premier black teas from Taiwan. This cultivar, Ruby (TTES No. 18), is a cross between a Taiwanese wild grown tea tree (most likely an Camellia Sinensis sinensis) and a Camellia Sinensis assamica. This mixtures of tea most likely originated during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. A modern tea cultivar for the modern Taiwan. Hand harvested and processed from the heart of the tea growing region of Taiwan.

The resulting brew is a big leaf, flavorful brew with plum like notes and a delicious wintergreen eucalyptus notes. Similar to our Amba OP1, this tea we think brews better in a gaiwan and has a softer more floral note that keeps on lasting.
