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.
If classic Phoenix oolongs are too sweet, and bouquet ones too florally aromatic for you, Tea Hong’s Black Leaf Special maybe your cup of tea. It is produced from a new cultivar developed for maltiness and complexity in taste. A very different oolong from the rest. Our special selection is harvested from higher altitudes near the oolong mecca that is Wudong.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave
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.
For people who like classic style Phoenix but desire something more mellow than Honey Orchid, Orchid Gratus offers a taste that is as full-bodied. It is balanced with as subtle a warm and slightly sweet aroma. Not only is this a great choice for the veteran tea connoisseur who seeks peace in the cup, but is also a bridge between softer oolongs and the more vibrant world of taste in Fenghuang Dancong.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
While White Peony from Fuding tastes more floral, that from the other earliest region, Zhenghe, tastes longer and deeper. The more tedious curing process is marked by the darker colors on the leaves. This is the best and most classical representation from the origin, aka King of White Peony, a favorite by many white tea connoisseurs.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSave
