    Spring 2019. Nantou. Natural honey flavor.

    Grown Without Pesticides

    Spring 2019

    Dong Ding Ming Xiang oolong tea is produced in the Dong Ding mountain area of Nantou county in Taiwan. Dong Ding is one of the most famous oolong tea producing regions in Taiwan. Its history stretches back to the 1860's when a Dong Ding native brought several tea plants from China back to Taiwan. Dong Ding mountain proved to have ideal climate and soil conditions for oolong tea cultivation.

    The Dong Ding area was near the epicenter of the 1999 earthquake that devastated Taiwan. In the aftermath of the disaster many of the tea plantations were left unattended. When work resumed on them and the neglected wu long was picked and processed it was found to have a deliciously sweet honey flavour.

    Investigation showed that the oolong tea gets its honey flavor from secretions left on it by cicadas. In order to encourage this special flavor, Dong Ding Ming Xiang oolong tea must be grown without the use of pesticides.

  • Aged Oolong Tea

    Aged Oolong Tea
    (12)
    1990. Nantou. One of a kind - smoky, sweet, complex.

    Aged Oolong tea from 1990

    Please note: This tea is unlike any of our other teas. We strongly urge purchasing a sample before buying a larger amount.

    Wang Tan Pei is a roasted, aged oolong from 1990. It produces a marvellous clear brown liquor with a pleasing aroma reminiscent of roasting chestnuts. The strong, distinctive flavor is slightly smoky with a sweet cleansing aftertaste.

    Aged oolong is re-roasted every few years. This is a delicate process that requires the supervision of a tea master. The roasting removes excess moisture that would otherwise give the tea an earthy quality.

    Wang Tan Pei aged oolong is a wonderfully complex tea that will stimulate your imagination. This is a rare tea very much in demand for its unique, refreshing taste.

    Notes about Aged Oolong Tea:

    The aged oolong does not open up like fresh oolongs. The tea is examined every 2 or 3 years, and if the tea master decides, it will be re-roasted to remove excess moisture and to retain the flavor of the tea.
