NEW WINTER HARVEST: Arrived 12/20/16
A deep, satisfying, winter crop, mostly sweet with a hint of vegetal, and a long unending finish. Due to weather distress, this is probably one of the most favorable Tung Ting crops to have come along.
Mrs. Su, one of the world’s few female tea masters, has been making this extraordinary tea for us for more than a decade. Sourced from one of the original bushes brought to Taiwan by Magistrate Lin in the mid-1700s, this oolong thrives only in higher elevations, where dexterous women from Tung Ting village hand pluck each leaf from steep hillsides on top of the mountain. In Mrs. Su’s hands, its floral fragrance, complex nutty body and lasting echoes of sweetness find full expression, making it a frequent annual award-winner and one of our most beloved offerings.
