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!
This one really should be kept a secret. Great price quality relationship if you like them lightly roasted at a price where you can just have a never ending series of steeps, a few cuppa or the pot for the family on a lazy Sunday afternoon - no regrets
I shall be very sad if this one ever drops off the list…
