Ruby Oolong is a special type of oolong tea produced in the Doi Mae Salong mountainous region in northern Thailand. This full-bodied oolong tea is deeply oxidized and slowly baked to bring out complex layers of cacao, raisins, and black cherry with a sublime, elegant structure. The soil in northern Thailand is soft and loamy, providing a concentration of nutrients not found in other oolong tea origins. This lends a unique sweetness and rich viscosity in mouthfeel. Ruby Oolong is an excellent introduction to the world of oolong tea with its deliciously sweet caramelized fruit and chocolate aromas that permeate the air as soon as it is brewed.

      I definitely can taste the raisin, black cherry and cacao notes in this tea! An excellent Oolong tea to try.

      Very tasty, quality oolong! Not too earthy like some oolongs are for me. I didn't find it at all bitter like the other reviewers warned, so maybe just be careful with the steeping time.

      I didn’t love this oolong. I found it to be on the bitter side. It’s possible that steeped it too long.
