From Taiwan come this rare, high altitude tea tea grown in the Sun Moon Lake region.  The T-18 cultivar, also known as Ruby Red 18, is a byproduct of crossing the large leaf Ashamu varietal, found in Myanmar (Burma), with the wild tea trees of southern Taiwan.  This tea, responding to the lack of rain, develops a complex character that encompasses wood, malt, menthol and dried fruits notes.  An exceptional and rare delight that is best appreciated over time.  100g (3.53 oz)
