Dong ding is possibly one of the biggest staples in Taiwanese tea. it’s darker earthy flavor profile pairs perfectly with the profiles of heavily roasted teas. This one is a little different, it’s roasting is heavier but not what is currently defined as a “heavy roast”. This allows it to be enjoyed fresh without any need for time to settle. Heavy roasted teas need usually need a certain amount of time for the flavors to settle post roasting. This baby is good to go, so feel free to break right into it and enjoy this very warming comforting tea.
Royal Peach Orchid (Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong) comes from Wudong mountain just above Phoenix village. Because of the genetic variation and the rich diversity of the vegetation, true Dan Cong Phoenix Oolong has a large variety of flavour profiles. Tea farmers have tried to define them in groups pomelo flower, magnolia, ginger flower etc. This tea is Honey Orchid aroma and is made from semi wild trees that are approximately 50-100 years old.
The aroma is fresh and quite floral, you can feel the sweet aroma of butter biscuits and sweet summer flowers. The taste profile is well-balanced, not too much to the green nor to the black side. Though it has quite a strong floral flavour at the same time. Mesame means third in Georgian languages and represents the third try for Prodigy. We think that the third is here to stay ;)
Sitting between a green and a black tea, traditional Oolong is withered by the sun and air, bruised through rolling, semi-oxidized and baked, then twisted and rolled into small spheres with purple and green hues before a final roast.
Grown on Dong Ding mountain in Taiwan, this Oolong is harvested from a 4th generation farm and nurtured using a distinct set of cultivar to bring forth its optimized flavor. Handpicked and slow roasted over charcoal wood, our Dong Ding Oolong represents the coupling of impeccably grown leaves harvested under optimal conditions in the high mountains of Taiwan and traditionally processed by an expert tea master.
Naturally rich in probiotics, Oolong is optimal for a happy belly. Coupled with its caffeine this is the perfect tea to start your day.
Chicken Cage Pole (雞籠杆, Jī Lóng Gān, "Chicken Cage Pole") is an obscure breed of Phoenix Oolong named for the shape of the mother tree, which has a reticulated structure and a thick-branched trunk reminiscent of a chicken cage. While uncommon in America, chicken cages are still regularly seen in China, often on the back of motorcycles in the countryside. Tea trees that are closer in proximity to the mother tree with respect to generations of clones are of higher quality and are more highly sought-after than clones of clones of clones. Being less-widely distributed than more common cultivars (we have not yet found anyone else in the region producing this tea other than A Long), this tea is grown from trees that are much closer to the mother plant than most standard grades. Notes of sesame oil and sushi salmon umami mixed with a bubblegum or starburst fruitiness and undertones of toasted corn. Taste of ripe starfruit upon sipping.
Apricot Kernel (杏仁香, Xìng Rén Xiāng, "Apricot Kernel Fragrance") is one of the ten original lineages of Phoenix Oolong, from which the hundreds of varieties of Oolong trees now living in the Phoenix Mountains descend. In Chinese, the term Xìng Rén 杏仁 refers to both the seed of the apricot, as well the closely related almond. In the West, the seeds of apricots and other stone fruits are often referred to as "bitter almonds" in a culinary context. We have chosen to translate the name Apricot Kernel as such because the fragrance of this medium high-oxidized Phoenix Oolong has as much in common with the flesh of the Apricot as it does with the almond. Robust, fruity, slightly malty, and with a rich, nutty character, this tea receives a stronger charcoal roast than lower-oxidized oolongs, such as Osmanthus or Magnolia Fragrance. Apricot Kernel Fragrance can become bitter if oversteeped, but when skillfully poured has a dynamic fragrance and flavor that traverses a landscape of floral, fruity, and almond notes.
