Smooth Ruby 18 – Loose-leaf black tea
Ruby 18 Loose-Leaf Black Tea is a wonderfully popular tea from Taiwan, smooth and complex it has a delightfully sweet after-taste.
Named after the leaf Cultivar from which it is grown, Ruby No. 18 was developed by Taiwan’s Tea Research Extension Station.
The tea has a bold red liquor and 90% oxidation, so is it a black tea? Ruby 18 is in some ways neither a black tea nor an oolong.
The leaves are bruised in a bamboo drum much like a traditional oolong, but the oxidation is higher, closer to a black tea, and noticeably higher than a Darjeeling 1st Flush which is usually considered a black tea.
We have chosen to label Ruby 18 as a black, as we think it will become a new favourite among our black tea drinkers, particularly those that enjoyed our Georgian Old Lady!
Expect layers of caramel, dark honey, stone fruits and a menthol undertone.
