Jin Xuan Oolong Tea is a hybrid cultivar produced by the Tea Research and Extension Station (TRES) in Taiwan, aka Tai Cha #12 (台茶12號). It is known for its buttery or milky flavor qualities and has a milder astringency and smoother texture.
Concubine Oolong Tea is the result of the young leaves being bitten by a tiny green fly, called a Green Leafhopper. In Northern Taiwan, a more common name for "bug bitten" tea is Oriental Beauty (Dong Fang Mei Ren). The effect of the Green Leafhopper results in an immune system response in the tea plant that offers a distinctive honey-like flavor and a complex, hearty character to the brewed tea.
Dong Ding Oolong Tea is a medium oxidized, medium-heavily roasted tea with a hearty, robust character. On the palate, you get roasted sweet corn, nutty/fruity notes, and a tangy, heady finish with just the right touch of astringency. Our Dong Ding Oolong is representative of a traditionally made Oolong from the original source of this type of tea, which is named after Dong Ding Mountain in Lugu Township, Taiwan. It demonstrates the broad spectrum of character and flavors that can be captured by sufficient oxidation and refined roasting techniques.
