Yuchi Organic Ruby 18 "Agate Pond" Black TeaTaiwan Sourcing
If you were one of the lucky few who were able to get a hand on our "Agate Pond" from 2018, we must congratulate you for such a wise and quick decision, because that tea ran out way more quickly than we expected, so that even we failed to reserve some for our own enjoyment. It was our very first attempt to make Ruby 18 from Yuchi, and was quite a success due to its fast disappearance. To this day, we are still wondering how that tea would have transformed over the years if it were not being consumed by our lucky customers.
The plantation growing this "Agate Pond" has became a tricky plantation to work with due to its wild nature. Collaboration with the plantation is extremely unstable, and that was why the 2019 version of this tea was missing. However, with the efforts of the Yeh family, we shall be able to have at least one harvest of this tea in every future season.
Our understanding of Ruby 18 has grown better and better each season with the processing of tea, such as "Ruby Lion." You could consider "Agate Pond" as an upgraded version of "Ruby Lion" with its superior material and environment, and we make sure that tea lovers will feel it with our meticulous attention to processing.

This tea is aimed to bring this very common varietal to a new height. To make sure one can feel it, an old dog worked closely with Mr. Yeh to ensure such material will turn out beautifully. It is quite easy to feel how a tea can warm someone's "Qi" up with this particular tea as an old dog has tried it with many friends.
