Ruby is our name for the Hong Yue (literally "red jade") cultivar, a premier black tea cultivar in Taiwan that renders a very unique character if processed with skill. Ruby has a very assertive, strong flavored cup with a deep red infusion color and is best for gong fu cha style brewing, using a lot of leaf and short infusion times to yield multiple cups from the same serving of leaf. Tasting Notes: Remarkably strong with exotic notes of wintergreen, camphor, allspice and tropical fruits Additional Info: Classic black teas offer a timeless taste of tea's rich history and express a distinct sense of place, determined not only by geography and climate, but also by culture and tradition.
