Our Hong Yu Red Jade is organically grown and produced in the beautiful setting of the Sun Moon lake area of central Taiwan. Hong Yu Red Jade is a premium tea that is harvested in strictly limited quantities, and demand consistently exceeds supply. Hong Yu Red Jade is hand picked in the traditional manner in late April, and it was lightly roasted. Light roasting produces a rich and complex brew with high fruity notes and a light hint of honey, in a pure tea that is less astringent and bitter than most black tea varieties. At first taste you will taste a little earthiness, with a light astringent finish; it is very malty with a hint of wood, and full of fruit flavor- dates, and ripe apricot. Try multiple steeps and experience the flavors for yourself!

It is unoffensive, which is it's best attribute. Nothing special here. Especially if you were thinking you had found another Assam Black Beauty #8, which is what i had thought. By all means give it a try, but get those hopes down and it may be more enjoyable.

This tea is very sweet, tastes a lot like honey. It reminds me of an Assam tea, but as if there was spoons of honey added. I found it to be weaker than I thought, it is a very subtle tea, no bitterness at all.
