The tea leaves are grown on the Tung Ting Mountains at 2400 feet where fog and cloudy mists hover every morning and late afternoon. When brewed, it produces a golden yellow hue, a flowery fragrance and a fresh taste.

I can’t remember which grade of the Tung Ting I bought at TenRen at this time—I think one of the best—and today I infused it in bulk to fill my thermos for work. So this note does not reflect trying to get the absolute best from the tea, but of it’s service filling a very practical need. The leaves are dark, tightly rolled, and smell like the dark roast TGY that I used to drink all the time. It tastes a lot like that TGY too, dark earthy toasty, quite nice and mellow. Good stuff, but not terribly special.
I picked up a few tins of Ten Ren tea years ago, when I was first getting into tea. This one has been sitting in my tea drawer ever since because I have realized that I mostly am not a fan of dong ding oolongs. But today, my usually tea-averse partner decided that he wanted some oolong to pair with moon cake and this was the one he chose! He drank two whole pots of it, and I resteeped a third for tomorrow before tossing the leaves.
The dried leaves are dark green, mixed between small fannings and whole, curled leaves. They smell of wood smoke and baking bread. After steeping, the whole leaves uncurl beautifully and the tea is a rich orange color. The scent is chestnuts and butter and fresh grass. It tastes of toast, nuts, and honey. Not a stunner, but a really excellent everyday sort of tea.
