From Health&Tea

Ruby Black Tea is a native species of tea plants grown at Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan. It is regarded as a high-quality black tea variety. This Ruby Black Tea is grown at a locally-certified organic tea farm. The fresh tea leaves are plucked by hand and processed into a broken-leaf shape. Using a natural fermentation method, the leaves are withered under the sun for up to 12 hours. Ruby Black Tea has a reddish-brown color with a sizeable body and enchanting aroma. It tastes smooth, tropical, fruity, and has a slight citrus flavor.

Stephanie threw this into our swap as a bonus! Yay! Thanks, Stephanie! I’ve had a ruby black before and at the time it tasted like artichokes to me. The minute I got a whiff of this one, I definitely got that artichoke scent again, and unsurprisingly, it tastes like artichokes too! So weird, but kinda good, actually. ;) This tea also had nice malty notes and I think a fruity note as well. Very enjoyable, especially if you like artichokes! Ha!

Backlog from yesterday!

I spent most of the day yesterday outdoors, cleaning out the garden beds and prepping for spring planting in a few weeks. Then in the evening it was Walking Dead and Cosmos time! I drank teas but didn’t take the time to log any.

Thanks to boychik for this sample!

Ruby blacks sure have a unique taste among black teas. My only other experience with them was from Mantra tea. This one is a little richer and more malty, with slightly less of a bright fruity taste. Very enjoyable.

Hong Yu is my new favorite tea is it so unique and complex if you get a chance try Rishi’s is it seriously the most infusible(bar pu er) and highest quality leaf I have come across yet. I also just purchased some from eco cha which I am excited to try their version but I have about 0.5 oz of rishi’s left and I don’t want too many open packages at once.


Sweet! Thanks for the tip :)
