Awaken and enlighten the spirit with this sweet and roasty tea.  This oolong is grown organically and is tested agrochemical free.  The producer of this tea oxidizes the leaves much more than traditional oolongs and then ages them for 6 months before sending it to an expert charcoal roaster in the Dong Ding area for a smoke-less medium roast.

This rare and unique production results in a profile that has a light roast upfront, then turns into a sweet, dark red fruit flavor, and finishes with a sweet caramel aftertaste, providing a thick mouthfeel.

Brewing Recommendations

Serving Size: 3-5g per 100ml of purified water.

Ideal Brewing Vessel: Porcelain tea pot or gaiwan; or high-fired, high profile thin clay teapot.

Steeping: Boil water to 212F/100C and then wait for the water to stop bubbling before pouring the water down the inside of the brewing vessel, not directly on the leaves. Brew for 30 seconds, then replace the lid and pour the liquor into a gong dao bei (fairness pitcher) before apportioning into tea cups.  Add 15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Remove the lid of the brewing vessel to allow the leaves to cool between steepings. Flash brewing in this manner ensures this tea can be brewed up to 5+ times and brewed again the following morning if left overnight.
