#26 - Dong Ding Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea

This batch of tea comes from Yonglong Village, just above Dong Ding Mountain in Lugu. This is the first crop of Tie Guan Yin strain that we know of being cultivated in central Taiwan. Our 80-year-old friend planted a small plot of Tie Guan Yin plants on his family land right behind his house. He processes the leaves in the traditional Dong Ding Oolong way that he learned as a young man. A unique find!

But given that it was only roasted once, it maintains a mild flavor profile similar to a Hong Shui Oolong.
