2018 Spring Organic Alishan Oolong
This classic, traditional style oolong tea comes from Dong Ding Mountain in Taiwan. Handpicking the best buds and leaves for this tea is mostly done by hand in winter. The low temperature allows the minerals to be stored up in the leaves. It is medium-roasted that undergoes repeated slow roasting over a period of days. The result is a tea with a robust flavor and notes of roasted barley, caramel and baked plum. One of the special characteristics of roasted Dong Ding is a lingering sweetness, rich floral and milky aroma, and golden liquor.
