Organic Hong Yu Hong Cha, Sun Moon Lake black tea (well-known as Ruby #18 or Red Jade) can be declared "Red Treasure" in central Taiwan. A hybrid from a Burma Assam varietal (mother) and a Taiwanese wild Camellia Sinensis varietal (father), was researched for years by TRES developing as a unique new cultivar producing carmine and perfectly clear liquor with super high quality in the world. The tea trees are widely planted in Nantou County growing thick and rich tea leaves because of the fertile soil and moderate climate in central Taiwan. Its unique sweet malt aroma and strong cinnamon and mint flavor, delicious with hints of fruit, and a little earthy make it truly unforgettable. Rich catechins enrich its character of black tea itself. It is also the best ingredient to make"bubble tea" (the most famous Taiwanese tea drink on earth).

Brewing tips:

The water used to steep this tea should be about 95-99 degree Celsius. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 150 c.c. of water. A steeping time of about 1-3 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor.
