Old Master Dong Ding Oolong


We have decided to expand the 'Old Master' series with this beautiful tea. Produced by an 81 year old tea master from the main village of Dong Ding, we were blown away by the quality of this beautiful tea. This complex tea gives rich creamy sweetness, sour fruit, roasted caramel and more as the leaves unfold. And it will only get better with age.

We are releasing a limited amount of this tea right now and keeping the rest for a later release. It is still a little young and 'fresh from the fire' but it gets better each time we open a bag to enjoy it. The only qualm we have is that it isn't charcoal roasted. When we asked the question, our new friend simple said that at 81, his charcoal roasting days are behind him. Fair enough! The tea is wonderful as it is already.

Wonderful. Remarkable Tea

Dong Ding is one of my favorite teas. I kove the wonderful nutty toast honey flavor. This dong ding is truly a master filled with just fantastic flavors of warm wonderful honey toast. Nutty. Goodness. It reminds me of Sugar Smacks cereal when I was a kid. I find it steeps well with lasting flavor at least 4 times. This tea is a master piece of dong ding

What an amazing sample

Was considering buying this tea and ended up not picking it for some 1996 Muzha TTieguanyin. However, I was lucky enough to receive some of this as a sample and man am I sad I didn't order it. Sweet thick liqour, some roasty wooden caramel all while being creamy smooth. Defenitly worth buying.

Lovely tea

Wow, I got a sample of this spectacular tea in my little June Teaducation Subscription Service. The toasty rich sweet thick liquor on this one. Insane. Man, I already have enough tea, I don't need to be buying more but... this sample is going so fast.
