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 over charcoal. The tightly rolled balls unfurl with a deep toasty and dark caramel scent, along with flavors of hazelnut and ginseng; the prominent roast and luminous amber color hold up through many infusions.
Try steeping the same leaves multiple times, and observe the arc of flavor and fragrance.
