A nice, mellow tea. Reminds me of shredded wheat cereal, perfect for wintertime. I mostly drink pu'er and as such am not supremely qualified to comment on the tea, but I can say with certainty that Matt is fantastic. I made a small error with my order and he fixed it, no questions asked, within hours. Top tier sourcing is evident when looking at the leaves as well. I recommend Mountain Stream Teas.
This tea is dessert. Think vanilla cake. I don't love highly roasted teas, but the roast on this is gentle and perfect. I tend towards the lightly-oxidized, greener, more floral oolongs, personally, so I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to try something a little darker and richer. Will be buying again, for sure.
Looks like I'm the first reviewer for the Spring 2022 pick. Not a huge fan of roasted teas, so this one was still a tad roasty for me. After taste has medium tannins. Very warming tea on a cold day. Not picking up on much sweetness.
This tea is one of my favorites. It’s light on the stomach so not too heavy in the morning. The flavor is delectable. The energy is divine. To be honest it makes me wanna dance !!! And I cannnnnnnt dance ! That’s how I know it’s good ! I agree with all the other 5 star reviews.
I love Dong Ding and usually fly through a bag quickly, making big pots to drink with family. This one was prepared gong fu.
It has everything my former Dong Ding had and so much more. The roasty goodness has many additional layers of flavor that make it shine above any other I have tried. Bravo!
