  • Dong Ding Oolong Light Roasted 2016

    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
    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.
