From Taiwan Sourcing

This black tea is a totally new tea to our collection. Even though we already have a very stable supply of Ruby 18 from Puli, this Ruby 18 from Mingjian is a tea we must include thanks to its super clean quality, and more delicate processing.

As a result, unlike our Ruby 18 from Puli, this varietal now has a much more elegant character, but very rich layer to savour with. It will gently comfort your palate and stomach until you are absolutely relaxed.

The existence of this lovely black tea is again a proof that Ming Jian, despite lower elevation and bad impression among Taiwanese tea lovers (bad impression because Mingjian is known for its mass production for low quality bottled tea), could be one of the best places in the world to grow high quality teas. We hope you will agree with us once you’ve had a sip of this beautiful ruby black tea from the heart of Taiwan.

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”
