  • Dong Ding Oolong 1985
    $99.00
    100g
    Dong Ding Oolong 1985
    A blast from the past! This is a very well stored Dong Ding Oolong from 1985 when Careless Whisper & Like A Virgin were top of the charts! What a treat to drink such a venerable aged tea! The dried leaves are dark & oxidised and have an aroma of roasted grain & dried seaweed. After first infusion, the gaiwan lid wafts with sweet notes of honey, toffee apples, salted fluffy white butter popcorn, mixed with heavier aromas of sandalwood, camphor, leather, musty herbal medicines. The tea liquor is a dark amber with the aroma of dried orange peel. The tea floats on the tongue - light bodied but viscous, with a smooth clean mouthfeel. There is very little sourness often found in teas of this age. The sweet flavor of roasted rice fills the mouth, throat & sinuses. An after taste of charcoal roast turns to sweet caramel. A very pleasant journey, full of warmth & character. This is a fantastic tea for relaxation & contemplation.

  • Traditional Mu Zha Tie Guan Yin 2015
    $55.00
    100g
    Traditional Mu Zha Tie Guan Yin 2015
    This is an impressive traditional Tie Guan Yin made in MuZha, Taiwan. A darker roast than newer, greener styles, the first infusion gives rise to an amazing aroma of sticky raisins & moist Christmas fruitcake. The tea liquor is a coppery orange whisky color, the mouthfeel is medium thick & slips across your palate in a lively dance of mild spices, the dry sweetness of preserved plum, underscored by a light charcoal note. A lingering aftertaste of sweet aged wood, turns to a slightly cooling sensation. High quality stuff at a reasonable price, sure to please discerning oolong lovers.

  • Bai Rui Xiang 2016
    $43.00
    60g
    Bai Rui Xiang 2016
    Bai Rui Xiang 百瑞香 has over 100 years of history, originating in Hui Yuan Keng, which is a famous valley within the Wuyi protected reserve. The dry leaves have an aroma of Chinese medicinal herbs, and the tea itself is very aromatic - floral, with sweet fruit, and sandalwood. The flavour reflects it's light to medium roast, sweet on the tongue with a cinnamon donut aftertaste! The mouth & throat feel is thick and smooth as you'd expect from a premium zhengyan rock oolong. These are high quality leaves, look out for the dried orange peel note on the aftertaste, and the creamy aroma left behind in the empty cup!

  • Dong Ding Oolong Light Roasted 2016
    $18.00
    50g
    Dong Ding Oolong Light Roasted 2016
    This Dong Ding Oolong Set allows you to compare Heavy Roasted (50g) versus Light Roasted (50g) styles. The heavy roasted Dongding oolong gives an aroma of dried prunes, old orange peel, roasted sweet potato skin, with a very sweet high note. The flavor is of charcoal, roasted pine, baked nuts. The mouthfeel is dry and thick, not oily like yancha. In comparison, the roasted Dongding is very different, much more grassy & vegetal, but still thick & creamy, with a sweet strawberry milk-like fragrance.

  • Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016
    $37.00
    100g
    Ali Shan Tasting Set 2016
    This set includes 50g Ali Shan Oolong + 50g Ali Shan Jin Xuan. The oolong leaves spring open very quickly and are simply beautiful, long stem, bud & two leaves. This tea has been expertly processed with great consistency. The liquor is yellow-green, turning to yellow-orange if over steeped. Fantastic aroma - light, floral and green, the mouthfeel is light and creamy with a subtly sweet finish. Pairs perfectly with quiche! By comparison, the dry, heated leaves of the Jin Xuan give an aroma of sugarcane. When steeped, the wet leaves give off melted butter, vegetal notes & baked bread. Later in the session, sweet potato, and caramel are noticeable. The tea liquor is thick, sweet, and grassy, but not astringent. Absolutely delicious! Try it out for yourself!

  • Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    $50.00
    100g
    Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine
    A spectacular tea with an unusual name to match - 蜒咬贵妃茶 Insect-Bitten Imperial Concubine! This highly oxidised, dark roasted, Taiwanese oolong has a heady aroma of honey orchid, tree resin & dark blackberries. We recommend fast infusions as it produces a dark amber liquor with thick mouthfeel very quickly. This tea has surprising endurance, it keeps giving rewarding, dense volumes of honey, citrus oil, old wood, and charcoal flavors - tease them out by playing with steep times. Push it hard and you get bitter tannic dancong-like flavors, with dried prune and sour grapefruit aftertaste. The aroma from the gaiwan lid shifts to baked apple pie, moist cake, toasted raisin bread with melted butter. What a stunner - a clear favourite from our 2016 Taiwan sourcing trip.
