Sip your way to paradise. Selected as a part of this special tasting journey so that you may compare this tea with our exquisitely aged Seven Wonders Grand Cru. Both are of the same cultivar. This Empress of Heaven oolong is lightly roasted and offers a soft butter color and a flirtatious floral bouquet for the senses. It has a tantalizing creaminess and a long, elegant finish that lingers on the tongue. Steep 1 teaspoon (3 grams) per 6 oz (180 ml) of water at 195°F (90 °C) for 45 seconds. Re-steep briefly 5-6+ times and enjoy the journey.

Gongfu!

I’m trying to maximize my weekend tea sessions in the park while it’s still nice enough outside to do so. Today was pleasantly brisk outside, with a relaxing stillness to the park that felt perfect for this soft and buttery Dong Ding oolong – like a moment captured in time. I loved the silky texture of the tea with its playful and almost lush floral profile; a mix of peony, orchid, and lilacs. Arguably more Spring-like, but still very apropos of the still mostly bright green colours in the surrounding space. Every now and then I caught a soft, creamy note of macadamia nut in the finish, which was delicious and special each time it happened.

Uncharacteristically, the park was totally empty this afternoon except for myself. Though I usually listen to music with headphones in when brewing outdoors, I did selfishly take advantage of the rare chance to play my music in the open without disturbing anyone. It was more immersive and highlighted certain aspects of the session in a much more calming and meaningful way…

I’m so jealous of the people who got the oolong sample and new blends. I still haven’t gotten a chance to try the main ones because they are sold out!
