Dong Ding Traditional
$18.50 – $53.19
This tea is traditional in the sense that it was processed the way Dong Ding has been processed for decades. It has a deeper, rounder liquor than many modern oolongs because it has gone through a long process called "lang qing" to evenly distribute natural enzymes throughout the leaf.
The focus of the tea is the liquor, which is juicy and thick. Sensation from the liquor can be felt in the throat, which develops into a long, sweet aftertaste. This is fruity, sweet and rich.
We highly recommend brewing Dong Ding Traditional Oolong in the gongfu style, using a small teapot or gaiwan. Add tea leaves to fill the teapot about one-third full and rinse the leaves briefly with hot water and then discard the rinse. Refill the pot with hot water and let the tea steep approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute. Increase the steeping time by 10-15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Can be re-steeped many times.
