From Tealux

Warm up with one of the most extraordinary, artisanal, hand crafted Oolongs in the world. This tea has been meticulously hand picked by dexterous women at Tung Ting Village , then, with the orchestration of the head tea master and patriarch, processed carefully by the rest of the male extended clan. Each batch of these Oolongs are then roasted slowly over a bamboo charcoal fire. The resulting tea is balanced, deep, and full of the rich toasty notes that Oolong teas are loved for, with the pleasing fragrance and body for which Taiwan teas in particular are prized.

Just when I thought I was getting a handle on oolongs. With Charcoal Fire Roasted in the name, I was quite confident that this would be a highly oxidized dark oolong. Don’t get me wrong it is dark ish, but it’s more of a medium oxidized tea. I was just surprised at how green it was, and how large the leaves unfurled to.
This is a really nice oolong. There isn’t a lot of metallic taste, just woody, lightly smoked oolong. The second steep had some hints of floral coming through, you could taste some of the “green” ness that was still present. All in all I quite liked it and would order it again.

I got this tea in a fantastic swap with Dexter3657 – thank you for your generosity!!

So far I’ve done two steeping of this, and I’m thinking I can get a couple more out of the leaves.

This is quite tasty. It has a toasted mineral quality that it easy on the palate. These roasted/toasted oolongs have a comfort aspect that make them so enjoyable.

Hey scribbles does your tung ting actually look like a balled oolong as the picture suggests? I ordered some from tealux and it looks more like a dancong wirey brown leaf. I think they sent me the wrong tea even though it is marked as the tung ting

Hi…my sample looks like the photo…balled oolong. Hope they fix that for you soon.

This is one of my Oolong teas. I really enjoy it after dinner or just on a cold day. I add nothing to this tea, as it smells and tastes great as it.
