The long twists of dark, dry leaves are scattered with tiny golden buds and have an intense aroma of plums poached in brown sugar syrup. The aroma of the bright amber-gold liquor hints at ripe plums and sweet dried banana, and the taste is of plums, raisins, dried apricots, and burnt sugar with roasty charcoal notes in the finish.
Taiwanese black teas are among the most prized in the world, and Velvet Rubies is the crème de la crème. Velvet Rubies comes from a small tea garden in eastern Taiwan that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, where each morning the plants awake to sunlight scattering across the waves. The tireless work of the expert tea masters there yields a tea that tastes of plums, dried fruit, and brown sugar. Each cup is like a beautiful, prized ruby.
