Tasting set - Lao Ming Dong Ding Oolongs and Anxi Tie Guanyin (Shu Cha)
Tasting set of our three best oolong teas. It includes both Master Lao Ming's unique teas: T58 and T68 and Anxi Tie Guanyin (Shu cha) made for connoisseurs from the Chaoshan region.
Each serving contains 12g of each tea, which will easily allow you to prepare many brews.
As it is a connoisseur orientated tea, for those familiar with the art of oolong's preparing, we recommend using the gong fu method - using hot water, small teapot with a big amount of leaves, steeping for a few seconds.
Master Lao Ming of Taiwan has worked with oolong teas for years, using his own special method. He has developed an affection for tea in his family home, where tea drinking has been a daily ritual. Researching its taste and properties, he has studied the best leaf treatment and manufacture methods, in order to obtain the most pleasing results. Each year he personally selects highest quality leaves from Taiwanese harvests.
Even though he has devoted his life to exploring the taste of Dong Ding tea, Lao Ming is neither a farmer nor a tea ceremony master. The closest association is that of an artist, whose creative curiosity is reflected in his unrivaled tea creations.
Master Lao Ming's oolong teas are an unequaled experience of taste, transporting the tea ceremony's participants into a state of calmness and contemplation. They are available only for a select few - people susceptible to taste, for whom drinking of his tea is a whole sensation. The tastes of his teas may be received differently by various individuals. The Master himself advises to either drink them alone, discovering the tea's secrets in silence, or in a small circle, of three people at most, sharing the impressions among themselves.
Master Lao Ming's Dong Ding Oolong is a strictly limited product, available only to those few he has chosen personally. They are intended neither for sale nor for export. We are honored to be one of those chosen few, and - with the Master's approval - make those teas available in as large scale as much as we are able to, considering how the quantity is limited by the author's capabilities.
