I received a sample of Mingjian Organic #18 “Red Lion” with my oolong order.
Brewed in a large gaiwan I immediately noticed a fresh minty aroma and taste.
I have had other Ruby #18 teas but this was the first time I experienced this. Perhaps my taste buds were off before, who knows but finally …
Usually I buy Chinese blacks (reds) but enjoyed this fresh clean Mingjian Ruby #18 enough that I will place an order.
First I want to try their Yuchi Organic Ruby 18 “Agate Pond”
