Dong Ding is a mountain in Nantou county, Taiwan and Dong Ding means “Frozen Summit.” Dong Ding Oolong is partially oxidized (30-50%) and then heavily baked for an extended period of time. As a result, it has a darker colour than some oolongs in its class, with a ripe, fruity flavour and aroma that has a long linger and full-body. Infamous for its impressive character and refreshing infusion, Dong Ding is one of the most famous Taiwanese Oolongs.
Be sure to give this oolong a very quick rinse, and steep multiple times for short steeps, and revel in a different experience each time!
Origin: Nantou County, Taiwan, town of Lu Gu (Deer Valley)
Elevation: 3,280 ft
May we recommend that you consider Eastern style steeping to get the maximum enjoyment out of this exceptional leaf – use 3 grams of tea per 175ml (6fl oz) of water and short steeps (about a minute), enjoying multiple steeps. Brew this oolong when you can take some time to sit and enjoy it and not when you are rushing about – it will produce the most perfect “be” moment if you do, and provide the energy to work vibrantly when finished!
