My son spent 2 years studying in Taiwan. He even wrote a Master’s thesis on Taiwanese teas and tea culture. Needless to say, he has a very educated tea palate. Each holiday he requests Traditional Dong Ding Oolong tea and I am so happy to have found exactly what he loves from eco cha!!!
Dong Ding is my favorite Taiwanese Oolong, and EcoCha's traditional Dong Ding is a winner. Great taste and aroma brew after brew
I recently discovered that I’m mostly inclined to lightly roasted oolongs, and this Traditional Dong Ding really hits the spot!
It’s a wonderful tea, with a full flavor and lots of character, but without the smokiness that I’ve always associated to Dong Dings. Please, please, re-stock it soon!
As advertised! The flavor was slightly floral and fruity in a high mountain oolong sort of way. A special cup!
After a long time being loyal to the local importer I've decided to follow the recommendations and order a few Oolong options from this website.
I brewed this tea in a porcelain teapot (I'm not much of an expert I guess...), with water in 95C degrees for about 4 minutes, with the recommended tea/water ratio.
The first steep was delightful, a milky texture and a slightly smoky flavor, along with a solid body as a proper Oolong should have.
The second steep was as aromatic as the first one, though even more tender fragrances were exposed with this one.
I really look forward to trying the other products I got with this one, and also to try different steeping methods.
I also must praise the great customer service and delivery, which is not easy in those times.
