This year we choose to offer a Dong Ding Oolong finished with the traditional charcoal roast. It is different than last year's offering, and this tea has darker and more complex flavors. This appeals to those that like Da Hong Pao and Pu-erhs; those that like the newer, greener style should choose our Ali San or Li Shan.
