Tung Ting Oolong

Tasting Notes: Vanilla, Caramel, Floral

Here is yet another complex and sophisticated oolong full of varied nuanced flavors. This exquisite oolong borrows the ancient Taiwanese method of drying the freshly picked leaves in the sun before rolling them in bamboo baskets thereby encouraging oxidation. The leaves are then dried using low temperatures. The rolled nuggets vary in color from dark green to a light green-yellow beautifully unfurling as they steep. The floral orchid aromas escape the infusion while the mild, roasted flavor and soft jasmine and caramel notes intrigue the senses. All of this along with its silky, buttery smooth texture, will leave you simply wanting more.

Savoring the Experience:

Oolongs have a marvelous range of flavors and appearances. This semi-oxidized oolong may be infused multiple times. Its full spectrum of flavors evolves as the leaves unfurl over many infusions.

Some may say that the subtle complexity of oolong tea requires it to be enjoyed on its own without food. However, we love Tung Ting paired with grilled fish or enjoyed with a snack of rice crackers and dried fruit.

Fun Facts:

The word oolong translates to “black dragon.” Oolong comes from the same tea plant as black, green, and white tea: the camellia sinensis tea plant. Ultimately, it is the processing and the level of oxidation that the leaves go through which will determine what type they will become.
