Ruby Red - Da Ye Native Taiwan Red Tea - 2 oz.
Hand-processed in the traditional way for the first time last year, this Ruby Red is an exceptional large-leaf red tea from Nantou, Taiwan. Rich, full-bodied, smooth and complex, Ruby Red carries a bubblegum sweetness and less maltiness than Formosa Assam. It is comprised of a hybrid mixed Burmese Assam plant with a native wild Taiwanese plant, yielding what feels like red tea but also embodies elements of a fine Taiwanese Oolong. One notable quality of Ruby Red is the way that it leaves the drinker salivating between steepings and desiring more, both signs of a fine tea. Also, Ruby Red is refreshing and uplifting, ideal for morning bowl sessions and sharing with loved ones.
