From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This is another TTC exclusive lot created by our Tea Maker. The objective here was to highlight the sweet creamy character that has made Dong Ding style teas so popular around the world. To achieve this, a careful blend of organically grown Cui Yu T-13 and Jin Xuan T-12 teas was composed and tasted before baking to determine if the right characteristics were present to achieve the desired taste (not many tea makers will reveal that they do blend teas…). As she would say: “You can’t turn bad tea into good tea by baking it. You need good tea to start with” Then, several rounds of low temperature slow bakings were performed over many, many hours (this is where the master is more discreet in giving details) resulting in this oh-so-smooth nectar that we are so proud to propose. A quick rinsing of these generous leaves with immediately release a custard-like, sweet, creamy aroma. The tongue will be pleasantly surprised by the supple, easy drinking texture with a slightly effervescent freshness that is quite pleasing and invites you to indulge with cup after cup of this perfect colder day soother. This is one TTC’s most popular teas and for a good reason. This year’s Lot 923 was made from Winter 2019 productions and baked one full season later in March 2020 to allow the tea to mellow and stabilize before baking. If you are at all familiar with our previous year’s offerings, you will not be disappointed.

Yet another stellar roasted Taiwanese oolong from TTC. The light roast on this dong ding strikes the perfect balance between warm notes of candied pecan, cocoa, and toasted almond on one hand and greener floral notes on the other. Very smooth from start to finish without any bitterness. I love roasted teas that don’t actually taste roasty – not an easy feat – but this one manages to pull it off.

I normally steep this grandpa style using 200 F water. Cold brewing brings out brighter, more lively florals and sugarcane.

Urgh, this sounds amazing. I desperately want to order from TTC again to get more of their delicious oolongs, but I need to finish off what I bought from them like, 6 years ago, first!
