Dong Ding Oolong Tea

The Origin Story

Dong Ding tea, aside from being known as an actual location, is the namesake of a classic method of roasting Taiwanese Oolong Teas. Due to its slightly higher oxidisation level, there is a softer expression of flavours - caramel, pineapple and lily.

Our Dong Ding Tea is sourced from the family tea garden at Chen Jia and then roasted. The characteristically broad and thick tea leaves lead to a sweet and smooth infusion. The traditional origin of Dong Ding tea is the mountain and village of Dong Ding.

We sourced ours close by from a mountain tea garden in Lugu Township, Nantou County. The name Dong Ding simply means "Frozen Peak"

Taiwan - Nantou

From the frozen peaks of a Taiwanese mountain, Beishan.

We worked closely with Mr Chen to roast this oolong on the lighter side. He sends it all to a close relative in Mingjian Township, Nantou County, and the tea is roasted for us there.

    Worth The Wait!
    I'm not quite sure I believe it, but I do think that the last time I had some Dong Ding from Jing tea was about 4 or 5 years ago. It was one of my favourites, and I was really disappointed when it was no longer available. Naturally, then, I was quick to place an order when this new batch arrived - and I am delighted to honestly say that it was worth the wait. Not only is this tea as good as the one before, I actually think it's a little better - there's the floral richness that I remember, but with a lighter overall sense to it - "mellow" as the caption puts it. Brings to mind the light of a late summer's evening. Just what we all need at any time of year. If you like Iron Buddha or Li Shan, you'll definitely love this Dong Ding.
