Real gem from winter harvest in Dong Ding. Directly from the Mr. Chen’s garden. 

This is one of the most subtle and delicate Dong Ding oolongs in our offer.

The unique characteristic of this tea is that it was processed with light oxidation. This was done to keep the floral notes of this tea. Skillful and gentle (low temperature) charcoal roasting makes this tea so special.

Its’ very fresh and floral with amazing round nutty and buttery notes. Peaches and cream.

You will find here also notes of honey and gently roasted cereals.

You can feel it’s so fresh and vivid but also deep and multilayered because of charcoal roasting made that way.

Aftertaste is sweet, honey like and long-lasting.
