Ruby 18 - Black Tea - 40g. - 20.00
A beautiful, naturally organic, heirloom black tea grown around Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. Good sun exposure, cool climate and lower elevation help produce a sweet, honey, spearmint taste. Rich with no bitterness but a slight, happy astringency and a long sweet finish with hints of raisin, undertones of brown sugar and spice.
Ruby 18 tea leaves can be dried and re-brewed throughout the day, from moon to moon so we paired this tea with a piece of moonstone. We’re happy to be working with Spirit Tea who source directly with its producers, The Yang family.
