Add to my notebook

Over the years, wulongs from Dong Ding Mountain have made quite a name for themselves. Grown in high-altitude, shorter daylight and greater temperature variations concentrate the aromatic oils in the slow budding leaves. They are well known amongst tea enthusiasts for their creamy texture and buttery taste.

In their traditional style, wulongs from Nantou region are typically roasted. But the last decade has seen farmers leaning more and more towards “jade wulongs” production: bright blue-green unroasted pearls gloriously showcasing the creamy potential of Taiwanese tea. This exquisite Dong Ding tea reveals bright floral fragrances rounded up by exotic fruits accents and delightful milky side notes.

Shan Lin Xi

Initial impression from this taiwanese highland wulong is an aroma of ground-cherry and wheat-grass which evolves into fresh vanilla and flowers. Rich creamy texture with sweet final notes of coconut.

Dong Ding Competition 1st Grade | Collection Box

This First Class, award-winning wulong is one of the last one hundred teas in its category from the 6000 lots presented this year at the Luku contest. As required by the competition, the leaves are tightly rolled with the typical colours of the region's traditional roasting. A rich and oily liquor presents its aromatic complexity while oscillating between the warmness of bark and grilled rice and the exotic notes of fruit and flowers . A zesty character blends harmoniously with its slightly resinous finish. A Grand Cru, delicious from start to finish.

Jin Shuan

Produced in Taiwan, Jin Shuan is the original “cream wulong”. This cultivar is single handedly responsible for the explosion of milk additives on today’s tea markets. Enjoyed by Taiwanese for its creamy texture and buttery aromas, we offer it here in its simplest form, void of any augmented flavours. You’ll find refreshing flowery notes (lily, dandelions) alongside vanilla overtones and, perhaps, a subtle spicy finish (cinnamon, nutmeg). All famously coated in this thick and syrupy texture.
