Foguii commented on Red Jade/紅玉 (aka Ruby Black or TTES#18/台茶18號), Artisanal Black Tea directly from tea farm in Taiwan!


Black tea with a citrus feel

Long twisted, dark chocolate leaves take a lighter shade of brown (tobacco) as water seeps into them. Decidedly fruity, red jade boasts tangy citrus aromas ( lemon, orange) and a very floral note, with timid malty undertones. A vivid, spicy tang, then, without astringency, that leaves a long-lasting impression with a fresh, subtle liquorice finish.
