From Everyman Tea Company

Tungting, Nantou County

A superb mid-oxidised oolong from one of our favourite tea districts, Luku, in Nantou County, Taiwan. This oolong has been crafted by fourth generation tea farmer Mrs Su at her family’s farm in Tungting frozen peak.  Harvested in November 2011 at altitudes of around 800m and handpicked by the women of tungting village.  The tea has been oxidized around 30%, thoroughly rolled by hand for hours, and left to dry.  Mrs Su then slowly roasts the leaves over charcoal bamboo fire for around ten hours.

Rich deep roasted tones, smoky, super full mouthfeel, caramelised sweetness, orange, tobacco, longer brews bring out marzipan notes, subtle note of stewed plums, chestnuts, a sweet and smooth finish with no astringency, the empty cup brings the aroma of molasses, syrup, sugar cane.

A fantastic rainy day tea, consistent, dependable and really clarifies the mind.  If we had to choose a desert island tea this would be the tea, we drink it so often it has its own dedicated yixing pot.  An incredibly warming and comforting tea, so well balanced and the real beauty is you can truly taste just how much craft has gone into the growing and processing of this magnificent tea.

Chinese style 4g/100ml/15sec +increasing.  English style 5g/400ml/1min + increasing.  Water needs to be around 85/90 degrees so allow is to cool for a couple of minutes off the boil. Make sure to pay attention to the water, or resulting steeps will be a little weak.

Review based on a free pre-release sample.

Semi-ball rolled oolong. Sweet, slightly roasty aroma on wet leaves. Sweet brown sugar on the start, clean and crisp mid-cup, slight floral notes. Slightly creamy, nutty finish. Gentle roastiness on the aftertaste.

Very comfortable, easy drinking oolong. Clean, elegant and balanced example of a roasty style oolong.
