A very fine version of the Ruby 18, otherwise known as Red Jade, it is intense with surprising licorice notes. The long, dark leggy leaves, contain some lovely buds. The licorice cup also has a cooling menthol effect. There are notes of spice, a hint of caramel, and a whisper of toasted vanilla bean. The dry finish completes what is a very interesting, dynamic experience. In a word, excellent.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 2-3 minutes.

Fresh From Origin

Long Tan is a rural district within Taoyuan County and lies southwest of Taipei County. It has a notable history in black tea production. In recent decades, however, low elevation tea farms on flatter terrain have begun to develop. The larger yield per area ratio is evident due to flatter ground where machine harvesting is possible at a lower elevation where the tea plants tend to grow faster.
