From the same cultivar as our best selling Ruby 18 White Tea, this tea is a very different beast. Easier to brew, this tea is earthy while the other is light. Still full of the minty licorice flavor this cultivar is so well known for, its expresses itself in a much more natural, deep and leafy brew. Hence the name. We are still more a fan of the Ruby 18 Cultivar expressed in the white teas and this amazing tea is nudging us further in that direction!

Recommend Brewing Style:

  • 3-5g per 100ml

  • ~90C water

  • Lasts 8-12 steeps.
