Try a small size—about three servings—of our Tung Ting oolong tea. Click here to order regular retail sizes.

This oolong is grown at elevations around 2,500 feet, in Nantou County, Taiwan. The leaves are medium oxidized, in the more traditional Tung Ting style, and finished with a careful charcoal roast. When infused, the tightly rolled balls unfurl with a mouthwatering aroma of sweet ginger and black vinegar; savory notes of salted licorice and raw sugar round out the concentrated flavor.

A luminous amber color and pleasant aftertaste linger through many infusions; note how the roasted fragrance grows as the leaves open.

Country: Taiwan

Earthy but not Simple

I am not really a tea connoisseur, just looking for something more complex and fragrant than the "same old" store brands. Tung Ting makes a pleasant cup reminiscent of the forest with floral highlights. It is delicious any time of day, but would be a particularly cozy way to start the morning. The complexity of this tea makes it a little difficult to judge how much leaves to use for a cup -- so everyone will have to experiment -- but it is worth it to find that balance that works for your personal palate.
