"The flavor reminded me strongly of extremely high-end European soft dark caramels: gently but deeply sweet and with rich woody notes, smooth and with a tiny hint of stone fruit." - Tea industry lecturer

Farmer Lee's Red Jade is a real pleasure. Think of it as a fine dark Taiwanese Oolong. It's lighter in body and not as malty as Fomosa Assam but sweeter, more delicate with a cleaner finish.
Along with our Formosa Assam, this high quality black tea is grown, hand-picked and roasted on the farm of Mrs. Lee and her husband above scenic Sun-Moon Lake.
This tea is also known as Ruby Red or Red Jade No. 18
