Meet the farmer
A sweet and fruity black tea, Red Jade is named for its glowing red liquor and is considered the crème de la crème of Taiwanese black tea.
Why we love it:
- This cultivar gives a cooling sensation on the tongue, like eucalyptus. The Taiwan No.18 cultivar was made in 1999 by crossing a wild native Camelia Formosensis plant with Burmese Assamica.
- It has a bright fruity aroma and complex flavour profile—you may even pick up a hint of spice, akin to liquorice root.
- Our Red Jade is produced by three sisters who are revitalising their family's old tea farm in the picturesque Sun Moon Lake region. They have adapted traditional processing techniques to bring out the complexity of this tea in full. The resulting tea is entirely different from black teas like Keemun from China or Assam from India.
