Taiwan Black Tea No.18 is pronounced Hong Yu in Chinese. The translation into English means Red Jade. This new Black Tea was created by The Tea Research and Extension Station which is located in the hills surrounding the Sun Moon Lake. The Red Jade is a cross between an Assam strain from Burma and a local wild tea strain. The infusion is very smooth with a long lasting taste. This tea is great hot, but makes a lovely iced tea as well. Highly Recommended!
