FALL 2014 HARVEST - Some say that oolong was created in China and perfected in Taiwan. We say that light-oxidation oolong was created in China and perfected in our Dong Ding Oolong. Skillfully produced in the Dong Ding region outside Taipei, this tea is the epitome of buttery smoothness and floral aroma. Shiny, tightly rolled, deep-forest-and-blue-green leaves with specks of olive, sage and army green give off a fragrant, floral and fresh aroma. As the leaves infuse, they unfurl into stunning three-leaf sets, opening more (and releasing more flavor) with each subsequent infusion. The first infusion is intensely yellow with a gentle hint of green. It has a fantastically floral aroma and decadent flavors of orchids, gardenias, fresh cream, the greenness of fresh-cut plant matter, light astringency and a hint of baked vanilla sweetness. Bittersweet notes of fresh gardenias follow in the aftertaste. As the brew cools, its creamy, buttery notes reach new heights, dramatically altering the overall flavor profile of this incredible tea. Subsequent infusions are often creamier and sweeter than the first, so be sure to reinfuse your leaves for the maximum benefit this tea has to offer. Brew for slightly longer each time and savor the creamy sweetness.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5.00 you can have your tea packed in a labeled black or white double sealed tea canister.

This oolong has a very flagrant and smooth flavor, and is the closest to the oolongs that I''ve drank in Taiwan out of all the teas I have purchased in the States.
