Ruby Black (Hong Yue)

Ruby Black (Hong Yue)

from 34.99

This rare black tea is made from a special tea bush type that was created by cross-breeding a Burmese ancient tea tree with a wild Taiwanese tea tree in the 1920’s. This unique cultivar was selectively bred for making exquisite black teas with remarkable aromatic complexity and strength. The name Hong Yu means “ruby” in Chinese, and is a fitting descriptor for the precious, lively, and deep red infusion created by this enchanting tea. Ruby is full-bodied and malty with a heavy flavor and brisk character. It has a wonderfully complex aroma unlike any other black tea with notes of camphor, wintergreen, mint, cinnamon, and tropical fruits. This distinctive tea is best brewed gongfu cha style with a guywan and savored over the course of many infusions to enjoy its long-lasting aftertaste and the dynamic aromas emerging from one infusion to the next.
