SPRING CROP AVAILABLE NOW.  

One of our most popular teas!  This tea is hand-picked, hand-made the old-fashioned way.  This new Winter crop 2017 is buttery like with notes of popcorn, steeps out a good long time and delivers a very smooth drinking experience.

Here's an interesting tea.  30 years ago, the most sought after teas on the local Taiwanese market came from three areas: Wenshan, Muzha and Dong Ding which produced a rolled oolong.

As farmers started making rolled oolongs in higher elevation areas like Alishan, Shanlinxi and Lishan, the popularity of the lower elevation Dong Ding started to get crowed out. In time, the farmers there started making their teas in more modern ways to cut costs.  

Fast forward and now there are a few farmers who have decided to go retro and make Dong Ding Oolong with the same production methodology as 30 years ago! Their goal is to remind everyone why Dong Ding got famous in the first place! 

Larger sizes will be packed in 2 oz. sizes unless specifically requested otherwise. In other words, an 8 oz. order will come in 4 individually vacuum packed bags.
