Farmers emigrating from Fujian province brought the first tea plants to Taiwan 150 years ago. The mountain climate proved to be especially ideal for tea cultivation, and this popular oolong is named after the mountain on which it’s grown, Dong Ding (frozen summit).
Oxidized between 15% and 30% with a very smooth body and floral notes, Dong Ding oolong could be said to be comparable to Tieguanyin.
What we’re doing:
- 1 heaping teaspoon (about 3 grams) of Dong Ding per 6-8 oz serving
- Heat fresh water to 180º-190ºF
- Steep 1-4 minutes
- Multiple infusions
What we’re tasting:
- Floral – Orchid, lily
- Sweet – Clover honey
*includes multiple infusions
