079 / Jade Rouge


Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan is a national treasure for its beauty. Grown there with a special TRES cultivar, we think of our first loves when we drink this tea.  Its taste is hard to pin down, but its memories linger.  Perhaps everyone will taste and smell something different in this tea. For us, we get a cinnamon tang with a long finish and star anise.  Tell us what you taste.
