Taiwan Ruby 18 Black


Ruby 18 is a modern Taiwanese invention, also known as Sun Moon Lake black tea. This cultivar is a cross between indigenous Taiwanese tea bushes and Assam varietal bushes. It was bred by a member of the Taiwan Tea reform institute back in 1999.


Rich and flavorful red tea with a generous helping of the special Ruby 18 spearmint fragrance. Broth is full and juicy. Along with the prominent spearmint flavor, there are herbal, dried fruit and caramel notes that round out the bottom end.

This is a luxurious, fragrant ruby 18.
