DONG DING HEAVY ROAST - 百年茶园重培

DONG DING HEAVY ROAST - 百年茶园重培

from 15.00

Category: Oolong

Origin: Taicheung, Taiwan

Harvest: Spring 2018

Sitting between a green and a black tea, traditional oolong is naturally withered by the sun and air, bruised through rolling, and allowed to semi-oxidize before being twisted and rolled into small spheres with purple and green hues prior to a final charcoal roast.

Grown on Dong Ding mountain in Taiwan, this oolong is harvested from a 4th generation farm and nurtured using a distinct set of cultivar to bring forth its optimized flavor. Handpicked and slow roasted over charcoal wood, our Dong Ding Oolong represents the coupling of impeccably grown leaves harvested under optimal conditions in the high mountains of Taiwan and traditionally processed by an expert tea master.

With an extra long roasting process compared to our Light Roast variety, the Heavy Roast Dong Ding has notes of warm, baked sweetness.

Naturally rich in probiotics, oolong is optimal for a happy belly. Coupled with its caffeine this is the perfect tea to start your day.

Tasting Notes: sweet caramel, brown sugar with a hint of toffee
