Black tea · high oxidation

Jade Rouge is a black tea grown with a special TRES cultivar in the Sun Moon Lake region in Taiwan.

Sun Moon Lake is considered a national treasure in Taiwan for its beauty, and this tea is certainly a testament to its terroir. With a beautiful deep red infusion, Jade Rouge is a juicy black tea in which the berry sweetness is balanced out by a cinnamon tang. A long, rounded finish lingers in the mouth.
