Mid-Roast Dong Ding Oolong

 

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.

Good, but I prefer the Old Master Dong Ding

It's good. Very powerful sweetness that is not overwhelming. Slight-Medium roasted flavour. For my taste, the Old Masters Dong Ding is better (slightly less powerful sweetness, but more caramel like). Good price to quality ratio.

Roasted Wuyi Goodness!

There's something distinct about the aroma of the Wuyi cultivar that screams the essence of tea. Just one whiff of the wet leaves let's you know this is tea and this is going to be an experience! It's almost akin to the smell of roasted coffee except this is tea and it has a much sweeter essence to it. The sweet sour is there with sweetness as the dominant note. There's just enough sour to keep the taste complex and interesting and with a hint of fruity aftertaste. A delicious tea!
