Tung Ting has a beautiful golden-green liquor when steeped, along with a strong floral aroma that excels in sweetness, a taste that is mild and floral, and an aftertaste that is both persistent and enjoyable. It is grown at an altitude of 760m (2,500ft). A prized high mountain oolong from Taiwan, this tea is particularly well-liked among coffee enthusiasts. Its name can be translated literally as “Climb to mountain with cold feet”. Oxidisation of this tea can occur in one of either two ways: By machine, or by charcoal. Typically, it is only 30% oxidised.
