The traditional style of baking Taiwan oolong is a vanishing art. That is one reason older connoisseurs are saying tea is not tasting like it used to. Fewer and fewer people are able to master the delicate art except for Yu Wen, our Taiwan farmer. She is dedicated to bringing that heritage back in vogue. Taiwan oolong properly baked is healthier and friendlier to the stomach for everyone after all, and used to be what makes Cold Peak — Dong Ding — the quintessential Taiwan oolong — soft, sweet and with a warm, nectarous aroma. We are glad that we can present you with such quality.
Warm, floral aroma carrying notes of dried fruits and with the overtone of the woods after rain. Soft, slightly sweet infusion with accents of the dried fruits of plum, peach and apple. Supple, round body with silky tactility. Slight hints of cinnamon an licorice. Sweet aftertaste.
This is a soft-tasting tea. As such, it withstands carelessness in infusion quite well. However, if you are using a larger teapot, make sure you preheat the pot well enough and use infusion water at maximally 95°C. It can be more flexible in smaller infusion ware such as a gaiwan or an infusion mug. The trickiest part is getting the right amount of leaves: it is an extremely tightly rolled tea and therefore deceivingly small in quantity before infusion. Use a scale if possible. In the event that you use a bit too much leaves, the tea does not taste bitter or astringent, but rather dry and a distorted profile. Use a shorter infusion time and a higher temperature to adjust in such case.
No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

To acquire really fine Long-jing in rapidly changing China, we had to search away from tourists infested localities, and yet still faithful to the origin of Hangzhou. In Wu’s farm where the underground water is crisp and the air sweet, our Long-jing master realizes the environment is more important than the convenience; there would be no quality without the traditional respect for Nature. Tea Hong’s Long-jing Spring Equinox might well be used by nobles and mandarins in their tea competition when Emperor Qianlong was still young and flamboyant, and crazy about the tea.Net weight: 60 g (2.1 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
