We finally found a tea worthy of the name Dong Ding to put on the site! From our partner farm in Mingjian, this organically grown and processed tea has notes of dark, stewed fruit, chocolate and the complex sweet sour notes that one comes to expect from the famous moniker. A skilled winter production using machine harvested leaves keeps the costs well under control as well. This particular tea uses the old and rare Wuyi Cultivar making it a unique variation on the theme.
