Also called Hong Yu (Ruby). No.18 was created twenty years ago by hybridizing Taiwanese wild mountain tea trees with Burma Assam tea trees.

Grown in the special climate of Yuchih Township, where Sun Moon Lake is located, these leaves are hand-picked in the early morning and allowed to naturally wilt before a quick rolling. The bruised leaves then sit overnight and into the next day on covered bamboo trays to oxidize before they are roasted and then bake dried. 

This unique tea was so successful that No.18 became the signature tea of the lake area.

If you're looking for a rare black tea to excite your palate, this is it!

Yields multiple infusions.
