Incredibly trendy in Taiwan right now.  This tea has nice ruby color, and most of all, it has unusual flavor of cinnamon or liquorice.   When I first encounter this tea, I was shocked to discover the tea  that is not flavored can have such a powerful non tea like flavor like this.  It tasted like twizzler, really.  When you are looking for some kick form the tea, this is it!!   Definitely keep some in your tea cabinet to spice up your collection!!
