A true, original Zheng Dongding Qingxin in a very good quality, traditionally crafted, more oxydised than other green Oolongs and lightly roasted.

Dongding is the name of a mountain where tea has been produced since approximately 1850. The gardens are situated at an altitude of approximately 800 meters and are thus not considered High Mountain Teas. Nonetheless, the climate is very well suited for growing teas of excellent quality: often sunny in the morning, foggy in the afternoon, and frequently windy.
Character:
A tea that does not put itself into the spotlight. A surprising pleasure, lightly flowery notes above a spicy, fruity ground.

Description:
This tea comes from a tea garden located directly by the ocean in the very South of Taiwan. A mandarin exiled to this place cultivated tea plants from seeds that he brought with him. Even today the tea plants there are cultivated from tea seeds and not like in many other areas of tea cultivation from cuttings. This is why we cannot speak of one single stabilised tea plant varietal. Through the closeness to the ocean the tea bushes always get salty wind, which makes the tea salty-spicy. Gang Kou Cha is somewhat stronger and fuller than other green Taiwanese Oolong.
Character:
Nice soft feeling in the mouth with a spicy, tingling sensation, and it enthralls with flowery lightness.

Description:
Xuepian can be translated as snow disk, which can only rarely be prepared, for various conditions have to come together: the wintery weather has to be warm enough, so that new buds and leaves can grow, then there have to be some cold days, during which soft rime could appear. But frozen leaves are lost, one cannot produce good tea from them; hence the tea growers have to spray water on the leaves until the harvest - a rather laborious work.

Available
Description:
This Tie Guan Yin is produced according to the traditional method, i.e. it is more heavily oxydised than its counterpart from Anxi, and it is strongly roasted after the firing, drying and shaping. This process leads to a dark and heavy Oolong with bread-like tastes, while the sweetness and the fruitiness of the Tie Guan Yin teas remain in the background.

Tea plants from the Tie Guan Yin varietal from Anxi (province of Fujian, China), were planted in Muzha, close to Taibei in Taiwan during the 1920s. And it is there that the Taiwanese Tie Guan Yin is still produced today.
