This famous and very special large leaf Mt Wudong Oolong tea is named 'Tong Tian Xiang' by the local villagers, which means to reach up into the sky.
The Mt Wudong Oolong tea features a uniquely sweet and uplifting floral aroma and is crafted by a famous tea master in Xiajiao village, China. The tea master follows an ancient production method which includes tirelessly working through the entire night to insure the tea is perfectly roasted.
The tea is lightly roasted and picked just once a year in spring from 40-60 years old Jiang Hua Xiang tea trees and can be infused up to 12 times.
We've selected this tea as an affordable option for those wanting to experience what truely high-end, expertly crafted tea tastes like. Now we know what you're thinking, $24 for 40g of tea is a little expensive right?
Well, when we take into consideration that 40g of Mt Wudong Oolong gets you somewhere between 20 to maybe 200 cups of amazingly delicate and fine tasting tea crafted by a true tea master, it's not so bad right? Just think what else could $24 buy you?
