Exploring the Uniqueness of Ruby 18 Black Tea

Tea lovers, rejoice! We have found a tea that you have to try. Ruby 18, a black tea originating from the Sun Moon Lake in Nantou, Taiwan, is not your typical tea. A hybrid of two tea varieties, wild-grown Formosan tea and Burmese Assamica, this tea is fully oxidized and has a unique taste and aroma. As avid tea enthusiasts, we knew we had to learn more about this intriguing beverage, and we are thrilled to share our findings with you!

 

 Ruby 18 is truly special. It is a bold, full-bodied tea with a slightly sweet and fruity flavour.

 

The Name and Popularity of Ruby 18

First off, let's talk about the name. Ruby 18 gets its name from the Taiwanese tea-naming system. Each unique tea variety in Taiwan is given a number, and Ruby 18 is the 18th variety to be discovered and perfected. Given the exceptional taste and quality of this tea, it is no wonder it has become so popular.

 

The Distinctive Taste of Ruby 18

The taste of Ruby 18 is truly special. It is a bold, full-bodied tea with a slightly sweet and fruity flavour. This is due to the high level of tannins and anthocyanins, which give the tea its rich color and unique taste. Many tea enthusiasts describe the taste as having hints of cinnamon, mint, and cocoa. This tea is perfect for those who enjoy bold flavours and rich, full-bodied brews.

 

Noteworthy Aroma of Ruby 18

The aroma of Ruby 18 is also noteworthy. Its aroma is often compared to that of fresh-cut apples and honey, which adds to the special experience of drinking this tea. The scent is so strong that it can even be enjoyed before taking a sip of the tea itself.

 

Health Benefits of Ruby 18
