Tung Ting “Orchid Flavor” Toasted
$4.00 – $21.00 (from $0.31/cup)
This delightful tea is lightly oxidized to create a beautiful, floral aroma and taste with a creamy mouthfeel. There is a touch of butterscotch on the lingering finish.
Brought to Taiwan from China’s Fujian province in the mid 19th century. Tung Ting has the reputation of being one of the first Taiwanese teas. “Tung Ting” (or sometimes “Dong Ding”) literally means Frozen Peak. Grown on a mountain overlooking Lugu Valley on one side and Sun Moon Lake on the other. This tea is grown at elevations up to 1000 meters at some of the highest elevation tea gardens in Taiwan.
