Weight

Dong Ding tea is a traditional Taiwanese oolong that has a medium oxidation and roasting. It is well regarded for its fine balance of sweet fruity and roasted notes. 

This batch of the tea comes from the high elevation of Shan Lin Xi. It was made by the farmer for the annual Spring 2021 Dong Ding competition. Steeped in traditional gong fu style our Dong Ding tea starts off with light floral creaminess, spice (cloves), fruit (berries) and a mild sweetness. The floral accents get increasingly prominent in later steeps, along with the finish that gets sweeter. Longer steeps towards the end draws out a pleasant bite in the tea. Long after the tea has been had a sweetness rises in the throat - a desirable character in a high quality tea.

We sampled this lovely oolong

We sampled this lovely oolong tea though a tea class at Leaf, and loved it so much we just had to bring some home. I'm looking forward to enjoying the rest of the bag! It had a wonderful, complex flavor that changed with each steep when made with the gong-fu method we learned about in tea class. I would highly recommend this tea, and the tea class if you can grab a seat some evening.
