Red Jade #18 Black Tea
Sweet and juicy with notes of berries
Grown in Yuchi township in central Taiwan, this is a fine example of the spectacular black teas that has been coming out of Taiwan recently. Red Jade #18 is a cross between Taiwan's own unique indigenous tea varietal and a Burmese Assam. This hybrid has been under creation in Taiwan over the last 50 years.
This season's quality is spectacular with a strong summer fruit and berry aroma. Along with Shan Cha this is one of our favorite black teas. The flavor is very sweet and fruity with notes of berries and summer fruit.
This tea is also known for its mint and cinnamon flavors in its profile. Through storage these flavors transform into sweeter fruit flavors.
