Something unique this time.

Dry stored aged Dong Ding oolong awarded in 2015 Lugu Lao Cha Dong Ding Competition held by Lugu Dong Ding Tea Production Union.

To participate in competition the tea should be aged for at least 20 years.

This medium/gently roasted oolong was sourced by my friend before 2015. He found it in the old taiwanese shop when the owners were selling out their teas because of retiring and closing the business.

The tea was so good already so he decided to participate in old tea competition in Lugu.

It won fine/excellent grade prize that we can call 4th rank in competition.

After the competition all awarded teas are packed and sealed in official ceramic jars – with numbers, seals and information about the tea.

We sourced 10 jars in total but we want to keep one-two for ourselves 😉

The clean storage of tea and 5 years of additional storage in the jar after competition made the tea which will stay in your memory long time after you taste it.

Taste/aroma profile: wood, incense (oud/agarwood), dry leather, forest honey, roasted vegetables, nuts, dry moss and wild herbs.

It’s really like a mixture of rich, exclusive incense like perfumes with experience of walk into the dark mountain forest.

* Jar on the photo has removed seal – it’s the jar for sampling. When ordering whole jar, it will come to you in sealed carton and the jar have another seal around the lid.
