Review: Dong Ding Oolong Tea Reviewed by The SororiTea Sisters

November 18, 2013

An extremely detailed review of Eco-Cha Dong Ding Oolong Tea by The SororiTea Sisters. They've included some thorough tasting notes to help you get to know this heavily roasted tea. Click the link below to read the SororiTea Sisters' experience through three cups of Dong Ding Oolong

"A very enjoyable tea.  I really like this company: Eco-Cha. The packaging is beautiful, and the tea is of excellent quality!  I like that they get their teas direct from the source, which means a fresher product!  This Dong Ding, for example, was harvested in May of this year, and it was hand-picked in small batches. I like that!"

"As I sit here and sip on this tea, I realize what a perfect for autumn tea this Dong Ding Oolong is, because it has flavors to it that remind me of autumn. The smoke, the chestnut, the warm notes of coffee, even the raisins are very autumnal to me."

"This would be a great tea for the former coffee drinker who misses that “fresh roasted” flavor of coffee but doesn’t miss the caffeine jolt or the nauseating feeling that some of us experience after a cup of joe."

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.
