Review: Dong Ding Oolong Review by Sagaci-tea

November 18, 2013

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."

The extensive oxidation and minimal roasting offer a flavor profile that has the rich, density of Small Leaf Black Tea while still maintaining enough freshness to give it complexity and vibrancy. Sweet, ripe fruity notes balanced by mildly astringent nutty/woody tones. Add to this an unmistakeable honey essence in both the aroma and on the palate. It's a proper Oolong in its complexity, and a signature bug-bitten batch of tea.

A mom, dad, and son team manage their small family farm and process their crops on their own. And the recent spring harvest offered the pleasant surprise of one day's harvest turning out to be Honey Oolong. This name is properly used when the flavor of the tea has a distinct honey character that results from the Green Leafhopper working its magic. The Leafhopper (jacobiasca formosana) is a tiny green bug that likes to feed on the sap of the tender new leaf buds.

As the specialty tea industry rapidly gains popularity around the world, topics like this one are increasingly mentioned in blogposts, newsfeeds, and on social media platforms. Unfortunately, this type of commentary is mostly hearsay, and lacks objectivity.
