Formosa Black Tea is a very rare black tea from Taiwan. This unique tea yields liquor with a very special and unforgettable aroma. In Chinese, Formosa Black Tea is called "Red Jade", or sometimes it is recognized as "Ruby Tea". In Taiwan and China, Jade is one of the most sought after precious stones. In particular, the red jade is a very rare kind. It was given such a name in respect to its highly prized characteristics. Its aroma reminds us of Brandy, especially cognac. Sometimes people associate its aroma to cinnamon or mint with notes of malt sugar. But it seems that most customers rather feel it tastes like brandy. This tea is suitable to go with dessert or drinking it in the evening or night. The strong aroma is enriching and gives a feeling of satisfaction and wellbeing.
Comes in a collectible red gift can, with 21 individually sealed pouches.
Total net weight of tea is 5oz.
Origin: Sun Moon Lake, Nantou County, Taiwan
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
If you like milk with your tea, add 10 to 15ml of sweetened/plain dairy milk and stir.
