Ruby Red has one of the most distinct flavors of any tea on earth, which is what caught the experimenters’ attention in the first place. Though this cultivar was developed as part of the ongoing research to create varietals that have higher yields and are more pest-resistant, Ruby Red was quickly recognized to be delicious, with a very unique flavor. Ruby Red is a cultivar born, grown and promoted mostly for its exceptional flavor. And when you drink it, you will see why. Repeating that it tastes like no other tea again and again still won’t prepare you for that first sip! Ruby Red tastes of cinnamon and wintergreen or mint, in some ratio, depending on who you ask and which Ruby Red they are drinking. It unfolds in a complexity that few red teas are capable of.
