About Ruby Brew Oolong

Ruby Brew Oolong is heavily oxidized and roasted tea. Like Royal Courtesan, it is a newcomer in Taiwanese tea making.

Just in the last decade, local tea producers collaborated with tea academics to perfect the art of high oxidation and gentle roast. Production of this tea is still scarce and has only recently made its way to the West.

The crimson, silky-textured infusion smells of toasted chestnuts as the taste of caramel-sweet Stroopwaffle and cherry transitions into roasted notes of dehydrated corn.
