紅玉紅茶 (台茶18號)

July 28, 2016

Red Jade brews a rich, full-bodied tea with subtle hints of clove, cinnamon and mint in its complex composition.

​​Formosa Black Tea is a very rare black tea from Taiwan. In Mandarin, Formosa Black Tea is called “Red Jade,” or sometimes it is recognized as “Ruby Tea” in international markets.

 

台茶18號又名紅玉紅茶,為國際知名紅茶中極為獨特之品種,堪稱「世界級」。

 

​​In Taiwan and China, Jade is one of the most sought after precious stones. In particular, the red jade is a very rare kind. It was given such a name in respect to its highly prized characteristics.

 

Red Jade Black is a rare and unique cultivar which cultivated from an existing Taiwan native cultivar crossed with an Assam cultivar from Burma. It is made and grown in Nantou and sometimes it is also called Sun Moon Lake Black Tea, resembling its unique taste to the beauty and picturesque of Sun Moon Lake.

 

此茶種為臺灣魚池鄉特有,是由台灣農委會茶業改良場魚池分場以最具特色的緬甸大葉種紅茶為母樹,與台灣野生山茶為父樹的美妙結晶。因其茶湯具有亮紅的茶色,且數量稀少如玉般珍貴,故起名紅玉紅茶,如同英文的紅寶石RUBY之意。此茶種也享賦「日月潭紅茶」美名,

 

Its aroma reminds us of Brandy, especially cognac. Sometimes people associate its aroma to cinnamon or mint with notes of malt sugar. But it seems that most customers rather feel it tastes like brandy.

 

This tea is suitable to go with dessert or drinking it in the evening or night. The strong aroma is enriching and gives a feeling of satisfaction and wellbeing.

 

Due to its prized characteristic, Red Jade Black Tea is highly appreciated both in the local and international markets.

 

其茶湯鮮紅清澈,滋味甘潤醇美,除具有天然肉桂香外,尚有淡淡薄荷香,此迷人香氣即源自台灣野生山茶,讓人品嚐後久久無法忘情,曾被紅茶專家譽為特有之「台灣香」,國外愛好者亦常有將紅玉紅茶與白蘭地相提並論,茶味甘香,口感渾圓厚實。
