This rare artisan small-batch tea is carefully rolled to give it a fine twist, then completely oxidized for up to 26 hours at an elevation of 6500+ ft. The constant flow of mist in the air at this elevation makes oxidation slow, allowing the artisan tea producer to achieve maximum desired color and aroma. It is then dried and matured with time and perfection.
Ruby Black is an excellent morning tea, lively and uplifting with stone fruit aromas and notes of raisin, roasted pecans, and chocolate.
