Each sampler pouch contains enough tea for 4 x 500ml pots plus re-infusions These super-premium, single garden leaf teas from Taiwan, Japan and China give a little holiday from our challenging reality. Ruby Black Tea No 18 is a unique and delicious tea you must try! Yes, it is black tea but not as you know it. This Taiwan black tea is not bitter (low in tannin) as breakfast teas are – instead enjoy complex, delicate flavours of malt, berry, rose and a hint of smoke. It is to be drunk without milk. Available only in Taiwan, made from a hybrid of native Taiwanese mountain tea and Burmese Assam Tea, this wonderful whole long leaf tea is grown at and produced at a family farm in Lugu, Nantou County Taiwan. We buy direct from William, whose wife’s family own the farm, and we are the first Australian customer. The infusion is deep amber in colour, with a delicate natural fragrance of rose and raspberry The cup is light and malty, and can be re-infused several times, by adding water once your gungfu set or pot is low.
