Beware of imitations! This Oolong is usually counterfeited! Chinese oolong is often offered as Dong Ding. Dong Ding has a signature flavour that is quite hard to put into words. This ‘Standard Grade’ is 900m altitude Dong Ding material. Its smoother, sweeter and has more of a ‘Dong Ding’ taste. Processing (roasting of the leaves) means this tea will last on your tea shelf and retain its taste longer than any green Oolong. The taste is fresh with light honey roasted notes and signature Dong Ding flavour! You should be able to reach at least ten infusions with sweetness and flavour carrying on through. We recommend short 5 second infusions to start. Hand picked from DD area, the tea retains the stalks which add to the complexity. Sourced from a trusty Taiwanese vendor in Guangdong. A good DD at a great price!
