Organic Ruby Lion #18 Black Tea (Summer 2018 Harvest)
From the ruby red heart of Taiwan comes this unique and exquisite Mingjian Ruby varietal. Hien and I have been a fan of Heirloom rubies for many years, and we've found one we really enjoy. Grown at 400 meters in Mingjian township, western Taiwan, this black tea is heavily oxidized but embodies a very clean and crisp mouthfeel, reminiscent of certain pu'ers at the 40 second mark. Despite it's lower elevation, this tea shines as a rich, thick, and relaxing tea, perfect for drinking multiple steeps.
