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.
