Rare curly Tung Ting leaves covered with Panax ginseng | TeaFountain Superb Wulong Edition | The hand-shaped curly and large leaves of this ‘Monkey-picked’ Oolong Tung Ting are another ‘Champagne of the China Teas’. The delicate scent and flavor of these Fujian Province (Anxi County) Wulong grade leaves belong to the Premium selections of China Teas.
A gentle steaming and semi-fermentation process (approx. 20%) of this precious tea allows the external part of the leaf to ferment without changing its cores chemistry significantly. Covered with Panax ginseng for increased health benefits. Light, honey-colored infusion. High in antioxidants.
Outstanding flavor. Preferred by the tea-connoisseur as afternoon and ‘Dinner Tea’ choice.
To sweeten consider adding just a few White Rock Candy Crystals or our popular Oregon Tea Honeys # 88005. To prepare this selection use hot, not boiling water, let infuse for 5 minutes before serving and, if desired, add hot water up to 3 times to the same leaves, allowing the tea to infuse a couple of minutes longer each time.
