What makes Jade Tung Ting a specialty?

Oolong tea is predominantly a Taiwanese specialty & has earned the reputation for producing the finest oolong teas available in the world.


This select specialty is only produced in the mountainous region of Nantou in Taiwan. The large tea leaves briefly fermented. The relatively short fermentation time ensures the rather light & fresh character as compared to many other types of Oolong teas. Finally, the leaves are firmly rolled, by hand, to form the characteristic Oolong tight tea pellets.   


Health Benefits

Recent scientific studies report that Oolong tea has fat-decreasing mechanisms making it a positive aid to losing weight.


How We Like It

'Green' Oolongs (tea leaves that are allowed to oxidise between 25-45%) are delicious when cold brewed. Literally place 5 pellets in a large glass of cold water. Place the glass in the fridge over night. After 12 hours, remove the tea leaves and when you are ready to enjoy, add ice cubes and sit in the sun. Cold brewed oolongs are honey sweet & floral. Very, very refreshing on a sunny day and nothing needs to be added.

Brewing Advice

Take 4-5 tea pellets (0,8g per cup) & briefly place under running water (which will help the leaves unfurl more  during 1st brewing). Brew in cooled boiled water (80-85 degrees) for 2-3 minutes. 


The Story Behind The Tea
Tung Ting is also known as Dong Ding which translates to 'frozen summit' or 'icy peak'. Tung Ting is the name of the mountain 'Tung Ting Mountain' where this Oolong tea is cultivated in the region of Nantou in Taiwan. The tea plants used to make this tea originally came from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of China.
