Ruby 18
Ruby 18

Origin:  Taiwan
Estate:  Nantou
Taiwanese Black Tea

Remarkable, delightfully unusual tea from the land of magnificent Oolong. An absolute treat of round, full, Assam-like notes, delicate cinnamon & what can best be described as Wintergreen coolness, almost menthol in taste & mouth feel. Long gently twisted leaves of this Sin Shin/Assamica hybrid are hand crafted by Tea Master William Huang. We are humbled & so fortunate to have met this remarkable young tea man....and we hope that he will always make a portion of his exceptional Ruby 18 for SerendipiTea to share with you!
