This is a white tea based on the iconic Taiwanese-developed Hong Yu T-18 tea cultivar that was initially intended for black tea production. Tippy leaves produce a pale yellow liquor with a woody and savoury aroma. The smooth taste has a lightly floral and creamy character with sweet notes of spices and exotic fruits.

Hong Yu translates as Red Jade or Ruby, hence the name for this tea. Our Red Jade black tea comes from Yuchi Township on the shores of the picturesque Sun Moon Lake in Nantou County of Taiwan. Yuchi Red Jade black tea has large twisted leaves that produce a dark amber red liquor. This tea is famous for its spicy, peppery and menthol flavours. There are very pleasant fruity notes and hints of mint and eucalyptus. Yuchi Red Jade is a very complex tea and the clean yet thick liquor combined with these unique flavours make this a truly captivating tea!
