Dong Ding Oolong is one of the best known Oolong species. It is a popular tea in Taiwan and is one of the most premium Oolongs available. The tea comes from Nantou, north of Alishan. Dong Ding Oolong grows on or near the Dong Ding mountain. Our tea comes from Lugu.
The flavour is fresh, crunchy with undertones of wood and pine trees. The taste is full and round, not sharp. It has a floral, fruity taste, but at the same time the tea tastes almost smoky.
Like all the tea we offer, Dong Ding Oolong can be brewed several times. All information about brewing the tea can be found here. We also include an outline of the recommended way to brew the tea with each order.
