From Taiwan Tea Crafts

The making of this tea started off as a project last year by commissioning a High Mountain tea producer to make an exclusive lot for us of higher-oxidized high mountain oolong as the tradition requires to make a Heritage Dong Ding. Then, the baking craftsmanship of our tea master was put in motion. This exclusive lot has been given a 3 step slow baking process to better highlight its smooth deep character and generous texture. A quick rinsing of the leaves will wake the wonderful roasted aromas which are both inquisitive and familiar with distinct caramel sweetness but a closer introspection will reveal intricate layers of more pungeant floral and wood aromas. A first infusion will reveal a deep nut brown liqueur which signals that we are in the presence of a deeper level of roasting. The liqueur is thick and multi-layered in mellow bitter-sweet, nutty and spicy feeling that lingers long after swallowing. The liqueur has a good body and a nice thickness and is full of flavour and the floral intricacy of wild honey. Extremely generous in re-steepings!

Philip generously included a sample of this tea with a recent order. I’ve been very impressed by the quality and value of the teas I have purchased from Taiwan Tea Crafts, as well as their excellent customer service.

This tea has some beautiful caramel and nut notes, as well as some gentle florals. It is sweet, and has a pleasant mouthfeel. A very nice tea!
