In this sampler, three artisan tea makers face-off to create distinctive and aromatic Tung Ting roasts. When tasting Tung Ting, emphasis is placed on "throat melody" - the dry, mildly sweet taste lingering in your throat. The mark of a good Tung Ting is in its "FIRE" - the post-production roasting that takes place over several weeks. Traditionally roasting is done by charcoal-fire. Recently, some innovative tea makers try to achieve the same effect via precise oven-roasting.
