Add to my notebook

A classic black wulong from Guangdong, both very suave and exotic.

This tea comes from a less exploited side of the Dan Cong Mountains where crops are grown without chemicals.

Its lively and fruity liquor (guava and honeydew melon) displays intense honey and floral fragrances. Powerful in the mouth, vegetal and woody notes are supported by generous tannins.

Produced from thirty years old plants, this deep and well balanced tea offers a lot of infusions.

Its finish is long, true to its name (meaning "taste of origin"), and worthy of exceptional teas.

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.

Bai Rui Xiang

A worthy representative of the rock wulongs, this wulong with delicately rolled leaves was only slightly roasted, preserving its flavourful vegetal (courgette) and floral fineness. Its full and tangy (tangerine) liquor, deploys rich tropical (durian) and honeyed aromas.

Chi Ye Bai Ye

This dark wulong from Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a a very great example of balanced charcoal roasting: light chestnut aromas with a side of ripe fruits and a lingering flowery breath in the finish.

Bai Hao

Easily one of the most famous teas coming out of Taiwan, Bai Hao wulong carries out a very distinctive taste (akin to muscat grapes and spices) that is due to the intervention of a very specific leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana).
