aroma is off the charts, that i can understand. but taste doesn't match up to what i experience on the palate. astringency comes through loud and clear in the finish. i give it 2 stars for its very pleasant aroma.
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!
