i'm always pleased that he's pursuing tradition and authenticity for dongding oolong. despite many repeated roasts, the temperatures are optimized carefully and never very high (which is usually a sign of impatience of cutting corners) that the leaves after all the roasting, remains green to dark green, never dull to blackish!

perhaps if you guys have the chance to drop by taichung you, he can go through the different parameters that are important and considered in roasting! like the speciation must be the ruanzhi cultivar, the position of the stem, to be wrapped inside or left outside etc, the roasting set up how it combines "yang fire" and "yin fire" etc..

he has also done up some rare experiments like gentle charcoal roasting of highmountain lishan tea.. thats was rapidly snapped up

Wow, I didn't know anyone was using traditional roasts on high grade Taiwanese teas. I will definitely look him up when I'm in Taichung!

I got a sample of 10 year old rosted Lishan from Tony at Origin that was so good it brought tears to my eyes. I'd love to try some of brother Chen's efforts if doable.

We all lost a great source when Tony stepped away from the game. He knew his tea and was truly dedicated to finding the good stuff. I still have about a dozen samples from him from before Origin Tea (I actually talked him into starting it, funnily enough), including some lovely aged baozhong I have aging in a Royal Selangor pewter caddy.

Curious, I filled out the form for a 75 gram canister when you first posted. I don't believe I've received any request for an actual payment does that mean I'm out? Thanks

Just got the e-mail announcing that I was one of the lucky ones! I decided to package mine with the Dongding. I love dongding but I haven't had any around for awhile. Passed on the Lishan... semi-regret but I do not want to go overboard. Excited to try them.

Hi folks, indeed the first batch of emails have gone out :)

we only received half the amount of tea needed to fulfil both international and local orders, and are now working on the allocation in queue. if you have not received an email.. fret not..once we receive more tea (if possible), then we'll continue to fulfil the orders :)

best regards

Got the email today and did go overboard and bought everything offered with great joy. Very excited to try these teas. Thank you, both of you guys.
