Also known as Mao Xie, Dragon’s Tooth is a pluck of 3-4 leaves on a single bud, mildly oxidized, pan-fried and fully rounded. The plucks are then slowly roasted for up to 7 hours before packing. This allows Dragon’s Tooth to be steeped multiple times. Slightly more oxidized than most oolongs while maintaining its ‘green’ characteristics, Dragon’s Tooth will impress any tea lover.
