Review: Eco-Cha Dong Ding Oolong Reviewed By Amanda Wilson

Remember, you can steep oolong tea multiple times with each steeping the flavors and aromas change. This is a part of the exploration and fun of oolong tea.

Amanda steeped this Roasted Dong Ding Oolong 4 times, here are her notes on the 4th steep: 

"For the fourth steep the aroma is gentle, with subtle notes of burnt sugar and spicebush, there is a whiff of smoke at the finish. This steep is by far the mildest, it is gentle, like drifting off to sleep, the taste of smoke at the finish is faint, it fades to burnt sugar and cashew butter sweetness that lingers into the aftertaste."

"Recently on Twitter I was asked which roasted Dong Ding is my favorite, I listed Eco-Cha's as part of my top three based on last year's harvest, tasting this year's I might have to change it to my favorite."
