Specific Information About This Batch
Batch 77 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club is a Dong Ding Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea. This name encompasses the two most renowned names of traditionally made Taiwan Oolong Teas. The name is derived from a combination of a place name that represents a processing method — Dong Ding, together with the name of tea cultivar — Tie Guan Yin. This batch is from winter 2021 harvest, and was allowed to settle for more than 3 months after extensive roasting.
The flavor profile is rich, bold and complex. It has a strong character that can be compared to a full-flavored Islay whisky. It is earthy, smoky and a bit briney — with mineral, tobacco, leather, and dried fruit notes. It really has one of the broadest spectrum of flavor notes we've experienced in a traditional Oolong!
