Description: Infusing the tippy leaves of this Ruby selection produces a remarkable cup with hints of muscatel and pineapple. The aromatic liquor has a redder hue than the usual Darjeeling black tea. Along with a cup brimming with flavor, there is a pleasant sweet note which lingers on the palate.

"Good portions of oxide red leaves plus tips. Sweet, bright and refreshing. Has the lingering aftertaste of the best Darjeelings. Catched a pleasant white grapes hint. Marvels at the first couple of sips."
