Ruisui Honey Red
- Brewing tips
Ruisui Honey Red | 瑞穗蜜香紅茶
Tasting notes: Malty, peach, honey
Origin: Ruisui, Hualien, Taiwan
Cultivar: 大葉烏龍 Daye Wulong
A representative of Taiwanese bug-bitten teas, this black tea is made in seaside Hualien and is loved for its alluring honey aroma.
Why we love it:
- It's a bug-bitten tea: when tiny leafhoppers start nibbling on the leaves in the field, the tea plant releases chemicals to defend itself - which to humans smell like honey. Farmers allow for a certain amount of damage to give the resulting tea a natural honey aroma.
- We source it from Mr & Mrs Gao, who were the first to experiment with bug-bitten black teas in 1999 at their Jia Ming Tea Farm in Hualien, on the east coast of Taiwan. They literally invented this tea.
- It is freshly roasted, which adds a toasted quality to the honey flavour—perfect for pairing with desserts.
