Earth Ruby White Tea

 

From the same cultivar as our best selling Ruby 18 White Tea, this tea is a very different beast. Easier to brew, this tea is earthy while the other is light. Still full of the minty licorice flavor this cultivar is so well known for, its expresses itself in a much more natural, deep and leafy brew. Hence the name. We are still more a fan of the Ruby 18 Cultivar expressed in the white teas and this amazing tea is nudging us further in that direction!

Really cool variant of Ruby 18

What's not to like about Ruby 18 teas? You like Assam teas, you like Taiwanese teas. Put them in a room together and they have a child named Ruby (18 years later?) I've never seen a white version of this before. Usually Ruby is dark and mysterious. I like dark and mysterious, but they say change is good for the soul.

Pouring it out into my makeshift teapot, it sort of looks like the leaves I just swept out of the yard. But looks are deceiving. Upon brewing, the unmistakeable warm, raisiny, sweet, rich, almost cinnamony scent of the Ruby tea wafts out of the cup. Closing my eyes, I would say this is slightly fruitier than the Rubys I've tried, but I need to make another batch to be sure. This is excellent. I'm trying to figure out what I want to eat with this.
