Each year, a portion of our winter harvest Tung Ting is set aside to be roasted to a greater degree than most Formosa oolongs. The process darkens the tea to create a rich and sweet tea that is smooth and fragrant.
The sweetness of our winter crop Tung Ting from an area near Lugu, Nantou County is the perfect foundation for a more concentrated roast. The slow roasting gradually caramelizes the natural sugars in the tea and sweetens it, while the charcoal imparts a depth and complexity to its flavor and aroma. We detect notes of burnt caramel, toffee and brown sugar in this tea.Brewing Guide
