'Doi Mae Salong' aka Dark Oolong Tea from Tea-Village in Thailand
This particular offering from from Tea-Village is very, very good. Tea-Village offers a range of interesting tea varieties grown in Thailand but this staple dark Oolong is my favorite so far. 'Doi Mae ( 'cause it's so fun to say) Salong' is warming, and rich, plummy and full bodied, even from drinking the rinse. It numbs the tongue slightly and warms the belly deeply. Four grams in a small 90 ml gram pot and I'm good to go for at least six steeps at just under boiling. I'd write more, but since I don't see it on their website I fear it is not available at this time. Plenty to see on that site anyway, and a lot more teas from Tea-Village I can't wait to try.
