Gentle Intro is a wonderful introduction to the world of Tung Ting oolong tea. It is made from tender tea leaves hand-plucked in Phoenix Valley of Lugu township. Unlike the strong character presented by a traditional TungTing oolong, Gentle Intro is easy to drink. Its taste is rich and mellow, and it releases a soft and ripe fruity fragrance. The tea leaves undergo medium-level oxidation and roasting in an electric oven. Tung Ting oolong's signature taste is present without being overpowering.
To give a slight "umph" to Gentle Intro, it is blended with charcoal-roasted Tung Ting so that drinkers can experience a hint of the robust charcoal taste that makes Tung Ting so unique.
Note: All our teas are vacuum-packed to guarantee maximum freshness, from the tea makers to your hands.
