A big thanks to Kate at Sagaci-tea for writing about her experience with Eco-Cha Dong Ding Oolong. She likes it! Have a read of her review at the link below.
"The first sip is bold, with roasted nutty flavours and a fantastic mouthfeel - buttery vanilla but with also some citrus tartness. The floral notes come out a bit later, with some orchid and red grapes, and a suggestion of cinnamon and nutmeg. The aftertaste is a citrus tartness, and there's no astringency.
It's a deeper and darker Dong Ding, and wonderfully interesting, I'm really enjoying it."

We recently visited Mr. Liu when we hosted a visitor from Italy who was keen on experiencing the local tea culture. Our guest was truly elated to be served tea by a true artisan of the trade. Mr. Liu served us three different teas that were all locally harvested this past spring. They varied only in their degree oxidation and roasting. And the one that was sufficiently oxidized, but only lightly roasted, immediately impressed us.
