Review: Dong Ding Oolong Tea Reviewed by The SororiTea Sisters

November 17, 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."
